Amber Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Amber Palace, Amber Fort, Amer Palace and Amer Fort are all different names that refer to the same place. This palace is located within a fort on a hilltop and the view is breathtaking. The ride up to the palace is also unique as it was done by elephants during the reign of the kings and one can see from the terrain leading up to the palace how difficult it must have been to navigate. At the foothills, there is a water body - the Maota Lake - and the whole landscape is one of tranquillity and beauty. The secluded hill, the enchanting architecture of the fort and finally, the scenic lake.
Amber Palace was established in 1592 by the then ruling king of the current Jaipur royal family. It was the royal palace till the 1700s when the royal quarters were moved to the city of Jaipur. A must-see in Amber Fort is the Sheesh Mahal (Hall of Mirrors), built especially to give the royal ladies a sense of starry nights as they were not allowed by tradition to sleep out in the open under the night sky. This immersive journey will exclusively take you through the fountains, water channels, cascades, mechanism of the Persian wheel, and the water tanks in the buildings. Additionally, you will also witness the gardens of this massive fort. Look forward to exploring the technological advancements that go back in time, which will give you an in-depth perspective of the sophisticated harvesting and water conservation systems that existed in the dry lands of Rajasthan. The success of these hydrological engineering practices is evidenced by the beauty of the gardens in the fort, called Kesari Kyari (Saffron Garden).
