Jaipur Fort

Overview

Amber Fort, Jaipur Travels & ToursWhat is there in Rajasthan if not its forts that together give the image that Rajasthan is famous for. Built over the hilltops, in the middle of enormous deserts, and inside the wild world, these forts also showcases close association between the men and their close possessions. Many of these forts while look rugged and rough from their exteriors; the interiors take you to an altogether different world. Surprises are the second name of these architectural marvels spread throughout the land of Rajasthan.

Forts of Rajasthan have still managed to keep alive the magic of the fierce culture and traditions of this state. The history of Rajasthan lies enriched in its forts, several of which dot the arid landscapes. Over the centuries several forts were abandoned and some captured leaving behind a rich history in their wake. These forts and palaces provide a rich architectural legacy of influences on architecture that begins with the Hindu- Rajput, shows assimilation of the Mughal and, later of the British, thus resulting as Indo-Saracenic architecture.

Built mainly in 1734 by Jai Singh II, it lies 6 km north west of city Palace and Nahargarh Fort, Nahargarh Toursprovides some stunning views of Jaipur down below to the Man Sagar Lake. The imposing fort harbors many legends and three kings have added their stamp at different times to the structures within the fort. In the midst of this lake, is a palatial duck blind, which was used for shooting parties by the erstwhile royal family. A royal retreat for the Maharanis, it was also used as a personal treasury for many years.

Amber Fort
There is a lot more to Amber than its splendid fort. Set in a picturesque location, Amber is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Muslim architecture. Built in the 16th century by Raja Man Singh, it sprawls on the hillside. Its construction was started by Man Singh I in 1592 and completed by his descendant Jai Singh I. Its rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise where a beautiful fusion of Mughal and Hindu styles finds its ultimate refinement. Painted scenes of hunting and war adorn the walls with precious stones and mirrors set into the plaster. In the foreground is the Maota Lake with breathtaking reflections of the magnificent Amber Fort-Palace.
