Amer fort photos, Jaipur, Rajastan

Amer Fort (or Amber Fort) is a majestic fort located some 10 kms from Jaipur city on a small hill. It is visible from a distance and looks magnificent. Fort campus is also surrounded with lots of hills and a “Great Wall of China” like structure.

This fort opens for public by 8AM itself. I didn’t have this information right, hence I went there by noon.

There were multiple options to go up- by foot- free, by elephant (one way, Rs 900) and by jeep. I opted to go up by foot. The campus is huge and takes several hours for proper exploration. The same combi ticket which I had bought at city palace could be used here. [View photos of elephant ride to Amer fort]
Once inside, spent an hour or two roaming around. It is a fairly large complex with thousands of rooms and windows. Leaving you with loads of images.
