Amber Fort and Palace Jaipur : Spectacular and Memorable

After visiting the Jal Mahal we were ready to visit the Amber Fort and Palace Jaipur and it is located in the city of Amer at a nearby distance of 11 km from the city of Jaipur in the state of Rajasthan. It is a popular destination amongst the national and international tourists. Situated in a hill this fort was built by Raja Man Singh I.

The excellence in architectural work is to be admired with the stone carvings being fabulous. The Amber fort and palace has been divided into sections with each of the four sections having its own courtyard and a gate that is used as the main entrance to the palace. During the Navaratris, animal sacrifice was done here in the name of religion but the activity has been banned since the year 1975.

There is also a beautiful garden built on the Mughal garden pattern and is liked very much by almost everyone. One of the most memorable things of this beautiful place is its Elephant ride. I, along with my daughter, was sitting on the same elephant and let me tell you the experience was amazing and left us speechless. Simply one of the best rides of our life, I took many photographs of this marvelous palace and also of myself with my daughter to remember this beautiful journey in Jaipur. There were many local restaurants and shops nearby. We ate delicious food items and bought mementos for friends and family members.
