Amber Fort is a magnificent fort that represents the history of Rajput rulers. Amber Fort’s beauty is truly mesmerising. From intricate mirror designs in Diwan-i-Khas to the marble pillars of Diwan-i-Aam, the fort is truly an architectural marvel.

The Fort was founded by Raja Man Singh and was completed by his descendants, Jai Singh I and II. The palaces of the fort are a reflection of Jaipur’s history. Their architecture also depicts the Muslim influence on Rajputs during that time. The fort had defensive capabilities that protected the kingdom of Rajputs. The high walls, the hills around the front, and the partitions along the walls – all contributed to protecting the city of Amber. Various exquisite paintings relating to hunting scenes, intricate carvings on the walls, the use of mirrors, and gardens within the fort add to the beauty of the fort.

The Ganesh Pol is located in the main palace of the Amber Fort. It is said that the Hindu god, Ganesha has protected the fort for over four hundred years. He is the symbol of good fortune and is a provider of prosperity. The Ganesh Pol is a gateway to three private palaces, one of which is the Diwan-i-Khas. Diwan-i-Khas again has intricate artwork and is the embodiment of unique craftsmanship. Its intricate mirror work can illuminate the entire room just by lighting a single candle. To reach the Amber Fort, a number of jeeps or small vehicles need to be taken up a steep road. The journey takes an hour to reach, whether with or without traffic.

Our experience, when we visited this historical masterpiece, was nothing other than amazing. Our journey was satisfactory and the atmosphere of the place was invigorating. We fully recommend everyone to visit this cultural marvel.
