It has a grand view to welcome you, lots of tourists here and there.A glimpse of the city from top is wonderful. Inside is a huge place to keep exploring for 2-3 hours. Had a wonderful time there peeking into history.

A must must visit if in Jaipur. This pol is as colourful and untouched as it was since 100s of years. Intricate carvings and colours are very gripping. Interestingly, all colours are natural vegetable colours.

Impressive entrance with a painting of Lord Ganesh above it. This and the surrounding decoration have survived well considering they are done in natural dyes.

The construction of the Amber Fort was started in the 17th Century by Maharaja Mansingh, Mughal Emperor Akbar's most successful General, and, before the City Palace was constructed in Jaipur, Amber was the seat of power. This is reflected in much of the ornate and impressive construction of the Amber Fort, and none more so than in the Ganesh Pol... More

Through the beautifully ornamented arches of "Ganesh Pol", the Rajputs Maharajahs would enter the royal quarters of "Amber Fort" (most commonly known as "Amber Palace"). This gateway was built between 1611 and 1667, and is a mix of Mughal and Rajput architectural styles. It honored the Mughal emperors and was dedicated to Lord Ganesh, the Hindu deity that "removes all... More
