A talk about Jaipur is incomplete without talking about the Amber Fort. The most beautiful fort of the city is certainly the pride of Jaipur. Located in Amber, some 11km from Jaipur, the fort has served as a protector from invaders. Currently, it is one of the most popular tourist attractions located in Rajasthan.

 

History of Amber Fort

The fort was built by Maharaja Sawai Man Singh during 16 th century. The construction of this fort started in 1592. Initially it was partially constructed and the construction work was completed by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. Today, most of the original structures have been either destroyed or replaced but the fort has stood against all the tests of time and invasions. (Timings – 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM Everyday)

 

Diwaan-i-Aam and Diwaan-i-Khaas

Diwan-i-Aam is the “Hall of Public Audience”. The beautiful hall stands on two rows of ornamented pillars and opens on three sides. It is said that the king used this place to listen to and resolve complains of his public in this hall. Diwan-i-Khas is the “Hall of Private Audience” and is beautifully decorated with delicate mosaic work in glass. The hall was used for arranging meetings with special guests.

 

Sukh Niwaas (Sukh Mandir)

Located opposite to “Diwan-i-Khas”, Sukh Niwas is a beautiful hall having sandal wood doors. An artificial water channel goes through the hall which keeps it cool. It is said that the king used to spend some time in this hall with her queens.

 

Sheesh Mahal

The “Sheesh Mahal”, which literally means mirror palace, is the most famous and beautiful part of the Amber Fort. You must remember the epic Bollywood film “Mughal-E-Aazam” and its song “Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya”. The song was picturised in this hall only. The walls and ceiling of this hall are made with glass and beautifully decorated with paintings and flowers. There is an incredible story behind the construction of this hall. It is said that the queen was fond of watching start while sleeping. To solve this reason, the king constructed a hall full of glass. Now, when someone lights a candle on the floor of this hall, the reflection resembles like hundreds of starts shining.

 

Mughal Garden or Kesar Kyaari

Kesar Kyari or Mughal Garden is another beautiful part of the Amber Fort. It is a picturesque landscape located just outside the fort. The garden boasts star-shaped flower beds in which the king used to plant saffron flowers. Currently, the garden has innumerable flowers of different breeds and it is a popular picnic spot for people visiting Amber Fort.

 

Elephant Ride

The Elephant Ride is a popular activity in Amber Fort. Pay 1000 Rs. and enjoy a picturesque view of surrounding from the back of the elephant. The timing for the elephant ride are 7.30 AM to 12.30 PM.
