We’re Proud indeed!
It is undoubtedly the most beautiful fort and the pride of Jaipur!! Amer Fort, also known as Amer Palace boasts of an artistic grandeur and structural expertise. It is a reminiscent of the bravery and courage of the mighty Rajputs, who had played a remarkable role in the history of medieval India.
Crowning the crest of a hill, Amer Fort offers a panoramic view of Maota Lake and the historic old town at the base of the hill, which was the early seat of the Amer kings before they made the fort their capital.
This rambling Palace depicts the true lifestyle of the gutsy Rajputs who are better known for their radical, audacious, volatile and decadent behavior. One among the best hill top palaces, Amer palace presents a curious blend of Muslim and Hindu architectural design. An aide memoir of the yester years, this palace is a redolent of creativeness of the artisans of ancient time.
In last couple of years, two major developments have taken place at Amer fort. A very old tunnel to connect Amer Fort and adjoining Jaigarh Fort is now opened for public along with the electric cab facility for the tourists. Though, the magical epitome of grandeur Amer Fort under the sun light during day is a mesmeric place for tourists in Jaipur, but now it also caters to the night tourists. The fort turns even more fascinating and enticing with the launch of night tourism. Besides, Elephant rides to fort, sound & light shows and cultural evenings have always been a favorite among the visitors.
Certainly, Amer Fort, is one of the few places in India where the entry fee is worth it with never ending, consisting of a maze of rooms, tiny and grand!! Spectacularly set within surrounding rugged hills and dotted with majestic architecture, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Amer Fort is one of the best places to visit on your trip to Jaipur. Now TripAdvisor also agrees 😉
