Amber Fort

A day trip to the dreamy Amber Fort will be more than enough to unravel its hidden beauties.

visit Amber Fort

Gracefully highlighted by the azure waters of Lake Maota, Amber Fort is a thriving marriage of sandstone and marble. It captivates visitors with its Mughal flair on all sides. Set in Amber town 11 kilometers north of Jaipur, it constitutes an iconic landmark in the Golden Circle. Also a UNESCO site since 2013, the complex seems to represent all the glory and value attributed to the great Rajasthan. But its charm only unfolds once you dive deep into the palaces. There, you will witness a cascade of resplendent design and architectural feats. An appreciation of centuries-old handicraft and tradition is what marks a visit to this dreamy setting.

The complex consists of a palace and a fort, divided into sections intricately intertwined by atmospheric courtyards. Each one is a little world onto itself with colonnaded halls, ornate quarters for family members, and traditional architectural elements. The “jâlîs” is one—latticed windows through which royal women used to watch the events in the Diwan-i-Aam. Among the most fascinating sights of Amber Fort is Sila Devi Temple, welcoming visitors right before the main palace. It features the most treasured example of silver embossing craft in the region on its door. The work is so delicate and skillful that you won’t be able to take your eyes off.

The rest of the palace complex hosts several spectacular pieces of inlays, frescoes, and relief works tucked away in the halls. As you proceed, pay attention to the functions attributed to each quarter. The true feat of imperial architecture lies in how each chamber, corridor, and hall was designed to serve the social dynamics of the royal households.
