This fort was built was Raja Man Singh who was a commander in the army of Mughal ruler Akbar. It's a large fort within which there are several places, gates, gardens etc. It took us more than 2 hours to visit every corner of the fort. This fort is said to be connected by secret tunnels to Jaigarh fort.

When you've been in India sightseeing for a few days, you'll probably have seen your fair share of Forts. This one does not disappoint and came in our top two forts of 'The Golden Triangle' !! If you can and don't mind a walk, take the tunnels (only the first 300 metres are actually covered) to Jaigarth (yes, another Fort).... More

This is a nice historical fort set up in the hills/mountain area in Jaipur. Unlike the forts in Delhi/Agra which are Mughal, Jaipur fort has more Hindu/Rajput history to it, so it is good to visit to get a taste of ancient Rajasthani history. The fort amazing for historical value, and you can access it easily by elephant ride or... More

Amber Fort is large and interesting and it's easy to lose a couple of hours exploring the nooks and crannies here. Just when you think you have seen everything, a new tunnel or staircase appears to take you to another part. Lots of photo opportunities and there is a nicely curated, but pricey, design gift shop called CMYK on your... More

Dont leave Jaipur without visiting this iconic monument. Lots to see. Recommend getting the jeep up and not the elephants unless you fancy queuing in the intensive heat for over half an hour. Best visited early in the morning. Hawkers are a nuisance. Just say no and don't make eye contact. A good guide book or a guide is a... More

Amber Fort or "Amer Fort" is more of a palace in Disguise that's camouflaged in the architecture of a fort. The huge gates that are placed on narrow paths were made to have the attacking armies come in the range of arrows and hot oil. That same route is used for the elephant rides now. So, for 11,00/- you can... More

All the guides rate this as a must do and we would agree. We paid 400 Rupees for a guide to show us around and he was well worth it. He wanted to bolt on a tour of a craft centre though and it was obvious that he would get commission on anything we bought. We also chose to walk... More

Amber fort is not a fort, its a palace for King.. you won't find anything like a fort inside it. No cannon no good museum.. its more a movie shooting hub. Many of the bollywood movie shooting has been done in its premises.. like Jodha akbar. only best thing in this fort is Mirror palace ( Sheesh mahal)..hire a guide... More

Beautiful Fort with lots of history! Getting there in a jeep with a 77 year old mother and her 75 year old cousin was an adventure in itself! Some great photo opportunities, and some beautiful beautiful architecture. Could benefit from training the local salesmen not to rip off the tourists so much, but hey ho!

An absolute must-see of Jaipur. This place is one of the top attractions and a real display of Maharaja/Mogul power. So very interesting and we enjoyed it tremendously.
