Amber Fort (Amer Fort)

Devisinghpura, Rajasthan, India, 302001

The Basics

Dating from around 1592, Amber Fort (also spelled Amer Fort) is one of Rajasthan's top tourist attractions and a standard stop on most North India itineraries. This enormous complex built under Raja Man Singh I blends red sandstone and white marble in four stories of magnificent architecture.

Highlights in the main palace include the Sheesh Mahal (or mirror palace), a small room covered with mirrored mosaics, and the Zenana, a maze of fresco-covered rooms that once served as a residence for royal concubines.

Visit as part of a full-day or multi-day tour, or book a package for Amber Fort’s light and sound show that includes dinner and private transportation. An excursion to the fort can also be paired with lunch and a camel ride.

Fun, informative, well-paced tour of Jaipur highlights
Our full day tour with Ashok (guide) and Bobby (driver) was fun, well paced, informative and entertaining. In addition to ample time to explore each of the main destinations, we had time to stop at a step well and at the beautiful and inspiring Gatore Ki Chhatriyan. Overall, this is an excellent tour that will be very appropriate and satisfying for most 1st time visitors to Jaipur.

Full-Day Jaipur City Tour with Amber Fort and City Palace
If you really want to get to know Jaipur, I COMPLETELY recommend this tour! Gheem (our driver) and Ashok (our guide) were amazing and made us feel very much at home. Ashok, a historian, was able to answer all of our many questions about the Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort, and all of the other attractions on this tour. However, more importantly, he was also able to answer our questions about the history behind the cultural norms that existed or continue to exist and why. My husband and I love to travel; not just to see the sites on a checklist, but to get to know the people and the culture, and that is exactly what we received on this tour. As a couple of bonuses, Ashok and Gheem were more than happy to accommodate our curiosity by suggesting other sites and places where we could learn more about interests of the people of Jaipur as well as the places that would give us a better understanding to our questions. And... Ashok was able to keep the interest of our two children (ages 14 and 10). He engaged them every step of the way, and at the end of the day, they were able to tell us what they had learned. Believe me, anyone who can keep the attention of two girls that age, deserves 5-stars! I totally recommend this tour, and have nothing but praise for Ashok and Gheem!

Full-Day Jaipur City Tour with Amber Fort and City Palace
We had the MOST AMAZING TOUR of Jaipur with Ashok! I would request him specifically when you book- he was one of the highlights of the tour in addition to learning about and experiencing such an amazing city! Ashok met us at our hotel at 8am and we were off for a packed day. We started off with Amber Fort learning about the architecture and history, we went to the Mirror Palace with millions of mirrors which came from Belgium, we also went to City Palace which is truly mesmerizing, the history and grounds of this palace is so rich! Ashok arranged for us to have a delicious Indian lunch at a great restaurant, we went to an elephant sanctuary where we learned about saving elephants and got to ride them and feed them. We went to a tea shop where we learned about different tea leaves and which ones are good for which ailments and also about spices, India is known for its spices and flavorful cooking! We also stopped at a jewelry store- Jaipur is known for its stones, though I'm sure if you want to limit shopping that would be totally fine. We also went to a textile store where we leaned about Indian made carpets, the whole process was fascinating and seeing these people put so much time and love into their work was inspiring. We were a group of 8 and were in India for a wedding so the next day Ashok helped us coodinate a bus to go to a clothing store, we all had saris and sherwanis made and they were delivered to our hotel the next day. We walked along a shopping area negotiating for clothes, bangles, shoes- everything. Don't ever pay full price in India! Everything is negotiable!! Ashok also had a few special surprises thrown in, we went to a hidden area with tombs, it was so peaceful and right in the middle of a neighborhood- we never would have found it on our own. We also went to an amazing dinner with singing, dancing and delicious food. There was an ongoing list of best food, and the restaurant Ashok took us to won for the whole trip! Ashok also arranged for us to see a block printing factory- the attention to detail and handiwork was mind blowing! I'm sure I am forgetting little nuggets but overall the tour was incredible, Ashok was fun, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about everything Indian. He was patient with all of our questions and was happy to pivot the plan based on our interests and made sure we made the most of Jaipur. We would 100 recommend this tour and especially Ashok! Overall absolutely one of the highlights of our time in India!

Full-Day Jaipur City Tour with Amber Fort and City Palace
It was a amazing tour. Our tour guide Ashok from Nikita holidays was wonderful, very knowledgable and attentive to our needs. We were given completed historical information about the Amber Fort and City Palace. We learned about the kings and his hereditary, how the fort and palace was built. Despite hundreds of years ago the building still stands beautifully and the colour never faded much. They are full of Indo Islamic architecture around the buildings. I especially like the Mirror Palace that the king used during winter. We also visiting Hawa Mahal, Water Palace and some surprise places that Ashok took us. You need to take this tour to know the surprises! - it is worth the money. Btw, lunch was great, not spicy, taste delicious and We love it!

Full-Day Jaipur City Tour with Amber Fort and City Palace
I had a very pleasant experience in my Jaipur tour with tour guide Ashok and driver Dara. Ashok is a very genuine and knowledgeable person. It was great to learn about the history of the sites, Jaipur and India as a whole. Ashok was a very patient person and went out of his way to ensure that the experience of the tour went beyond just a factual explanation of the sites but rather an experience of meaningful conversation. He is also a very interesting person with some nice hobbies and past and it was great to learn about him as a person. On top of the sites stated in the tour, Ashok also took me to some other sites that were as beautiful as the ones included in the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

Full-Day Jaipur City Tour with Amber Fort and City Palace
Our tour guide Ashook was provided us with a life changing experience in Jaipur. The morning of the trip started off as expected with a tour of the Amber fort. Ashook was very knowledgeable about the site and really encouraged us to ask all of the questions we wanted and to take the time we needed to explore the site to it's fullest. The lunch at city palace was where the trip took the life changing turn, we invited Ashook to share a meal with us and really got to know him as an individual. We then informed him that our goal was to become fully immersed in the culture and he did just that. He took us to a surprise monument where we were encouraged to take our shoes off, sit down and listen and feel everything. Ashook took time to explain Indian culture, religion, various symbols, and hand reading. This really made our trip unforgettable and indescribable in many ways. Ashook is also a jokester and made us laugh many times along the way. If you're in Jaipur and want the best possible experience, then I highly recommend that you book Ashook as your tour guide. You won't regret it!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Carry a hat or parasol and wear sunscreen. The sun here is powerful, and there’s not much shade.

  • Bring water, as it’s not available for sale inside the fort gates.

  • Comfortable shoes are a must, as getting up to the fort and around the grounds requires a lot of walking.

  • Travelers with mobility concerns can take a jeep up to the top of the palace for an extra fee.

  • Amber is pronounced “ah-meer.”

How to Get There

Amber Fort is located on the outskirts of Jaipur, about 8 miles (13 kilometers) from the Pink City, just past Maota Lake, near Jaigarh Fort, on the road that leads out of town toward Delhi and Agra. Most visitors come here as part of a larger day tour, although those wanting to see the fort can always hire an auto-rickshaw or taxi to drop them off.

Show all


When to Get There

Amber Fort is open throughout the year. However, its high elevation, lack of shade, and desert location can lead to some oppressively hot and sunny conditions, so it’s a good idea to arrive at sunrise to avoid the worst heat of the day. This is especially advisable if you’re visiting during the hot months of April–June.

Dine Like a Royal Inside Amber Fort

For a special, romantic, and regal experience, book a table at 1135 AD, housed in an elegant series of rooms right inside Amber Fort, just off the main courtyard. The menu here features rich Rajasthani dishes, many of which date back generations. However, it’s the ambience that really makes 1135 feel special, with elegant purple-and-gold chairs, crystal chandeliers, and archways and pillars covered with intricately detailed frescoes.
