Jaipur (Pink City of India) : Amer Palace

AMER PALACE: Raja Man Singh built Amer Palace in 16th Century. Rajputs made use fo Amber Fort from 16th Century up to the foundation of Jaipur in 1727 both for defense purpose as well as the residential purposes.


Within its mighty walls, you will find magnificent places made from marble & precious stones, richly decorated with intricate stonemason works and paintings, which represented the royal splendor and luxury. The fort’s first courtyard is a wide expanse, dominated by two buldings- the pillared red sandstone Diwan-e-Aam(The Hall for Public Audience) and the intricately painted double-storeyed Gate. Beyond these lies a series of pillared corridors, centering around a typical Mughal Garden(Charbagh), bounded on one side by Sukh Niwas and on the other by Jas Mandir, a lovely piece of architecture: delicate mirror work, paint & carving (especially the exquisitely carved jaalis). There is one temple inside the fort & we didn’t saw it from inside due a long queue of tourists.
