Amber fort is one of the famous fort in Jaipur and the sheesh mahal (glass palace) is an awesome treat to your eyes. It takes minimum two hours to visit the fort and it is worth it.

Absolutely a must see, fort is in incredible condition and a grand scale. Elephant rides up the hill are a bit naff, avoid. If you've got the legs for it and can handle heights, Troy up the stairs opposite the fort along the wall for a break from the crowds and an amazing view.

Amber fort is located in Amer, Jaipur around 14km from the city. We can hire online cars from the city which charges a bit more than the usual trips because of the hilly terrain. Small refreshments are available at the base of the fort, don't forget to buy something or else you will be exhausted over the top where only... More

The amber fort itself is amazing but I was heartbroken to see elephants being ridden. Tons of tourists riding elephants from the bottom to the top whilst the handlers were kicking the elephants in the head and hitting them hard with wooden poles. So sad to see. Other than this the fort itself was very beautiful and worth a visit.... More

When you look at this fort / palace from the Rd it doesn't look big but once you've braved the steps and climbed up it it and gone though the sun gate, it's huge. Plan on a good couple of hours exploring the nooks and cranny's, up and down the staircases finding new places. And make sure you take the... More

The Amber or Amer Fort is quite extraordinary - the extravagant opulence of the past is tangible. You need a guide - hopefully not just for the bald history of rulers and buildings but also an insight into the lives of people who were there in the past. There are elephants to take you up to the fort - however,... More

The fort itself is beautiful and has an amazing view across the hills. The history is rich and I would recommend having a tour/audio guide. The only reason I've given it 3 stars instead of 5 is because of the elephant ride which unfortunately many tourists still support. Unfortunately our tour company had pre-paid for it (so we inadvertently supported... More

This is a world class fort that is breathtaking from the outside. I found the best places for photographs were from the roadside looking across the water to get the reflection, and also the gardens as soon as your enter the complex from the road. The inside of the fort is not quite as spectacular as the outside but still... More

Read the tourist hype about the Amber Fort and you would think the only way you can get up to it is by riding an elephant. That might seem like a fun way to get up but believe me those elephants are not treated well, so get walking (about 10 minutes) or take a guided trip up by vehicle. Check... More

This is really worth a visit in the historic trading city of Jaipur. The fort is large and impressive. The defensive walls that cover the surrounding hills are equally impressive. Take a local guide as there is a lot to understand.
