Among the famous forts in Jaipur overlooking Maota Lake, stands the majestic Amber or Amer Fort , which was inhabited by the Rajput royals until Jaipur was established.
Perching up on the hill, this fort can be reached by a jeep ride or an elephant ride. It opens its doors to the perfect blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture which shows the grandeur of yesteryears with its elaborate mirror work.
Some of the places to visit here are the Shila Mata temple, Jas Mandir and the splendid Sheesh Mahal. Brilliant paintings, stone and mirror works are exceptional here.
One has to stay back till evening when the fort comes to life with its sound and light show which is impressive and enthralling.
