About Amber Fort



One of the must visited places when you are in Rajasthan, the Amber Fort stands perched atop a cliff beside the Jaipur Delhi Highway. The architecture is a fine blend of the Mughal and Rajput schools of architecture, beautifully combining white marble and redstone. The beautiful Maota Lake lends the majestic structure a splendid view. The sturdy ramparts and the lovely palaces make Amber Fort one of the prime attractions of the state.

The Shila Mata Temple or the Kali Temple is located within the fort precincts. Shila Mata is the family deity of the Kachhawaha Rajput royals. The black stone idol of the Goddess is believed to have been imported from East Bengal.

The Amber Palace is a magnificent structure built within the Amber Fort. Large, sprawling gardens, grand chambers and large rooms, a rich decoration and excellent planning mark the construction of the Amber Palace. Built by Man Singh I, a Rajput ruler of Jaipur belonging to the Kachwaha clan and a general in the Mughal army, the Amber Palace boasts of spectacular structures such as the Ganesh Pole, Jai Mandir, Sheesh Mahal and Sukh Niwas. These are all historic monuments, opulent in their designing and lavished with various decorative devises. Amber Palace boasts of the dazzling Seesh Mahal, the hall of Mirrors and Jai Mandir (Temple Of Victory). In the Sukh Niwas Palace, an ingenious use of the natural water flow to recreate an air conditioning effect may be seen.
