The Amber Fort of Rajasthan set in picturesque and rugged hills is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The Amber Fort of Rajasthan looks stunning, all-built in white marble and red sandstone. To add to the Amber fort of Rajasthan’s charm, Maotha Lake makes its foreground.

The crystal mirror image of the Amer Fort, on the still waters of the lake, seems to be a beautiful illusion. The rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise with a beautiful fusion ofart and architecture. Amber of Rajasthan is the classic and romantic fort- palace with a magnificent aura.

In 1592, construction of the Fort was started by Raja Man Singh I. However, the Amber Fort of Rajasthan took its present form during the reign of Raja Jai Singh I but the Meenas were the original builders of Amber of Rajasthan, which town they consecrated to Amba, the Mother Goddess, whom they knew as `Gatta Rani’ or `Queen of the Pass’. Built over the remnants of anearlier structure, the palace complex which stands to this date was commenced under the reign of Raja Man Singh, Commander in Chief of Emperor Akbar’s army and a member of the Emperor’s inner circle of nine courtiers in 1592. Amber was modified by successive rulers over the next 150 years, until the Kachwahas shifted their capital to Jaipur during the time of Sawai JaiSingh II.

If you are visiting Jaipur then do visit this place, you will truly love this place. Its like an chamber of beautiful  secrets &  architecture.

Try to visit this place in evening because when you  look around from the top of this palace then you would be able to see pinkcity beauty.
