With its magnificent sandstone and marble facade and rich history, it’s easy to see why the Amber Fort is one of Jaipur’s most visited sites. This extensive palace complex — set atop a hill and surrounded by a series of towering walls and gates — was built in the 16th century by the Meena king Raja Ralun Singh. Pass through the impressive Sun Gate and follow the cobbled paths to reach the palace, where you can view the Amber Fort in all its glory. Discover the palace’s ornate interiors (think intricate carvings, beautiful frescoes depicting scenes from Hindu mythology, and paintings of Rajput royalty)
and gorgeous grounds that are home to ancient temples, peaceful courtyards and perfectly pruned gardens. Join a local guide to learn about the Amber Fort's rich history and the many tales of treachery and bloodshed, and make sure to leave some time to soak in the panoramic views of the Maota Lake and the surrounding hills and valleys.
