Amber Fort- Beautiful place of Jaipur.

Amber Fort is located at a distance of 11km from Jaipur city. It was the sear of power of the Kachhawaha clan of Amber. It used to be their capital, until it was moved to Jaipur. The construction of the fort began in the year 1592 by Raja Man Singh-I but he could not complete the construction after that his descendant Jai Singh-I completed its construction.

Architecture
The fort is built with white marble and red sandstone. It looks even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. The fort in itself is a remarkable sight. As one looks on the fort with its clear reflection on the lake in the front, one cannot help but wonder if it is a dream or a beautiful illusion.
The exterior of the Fort is not in the least like its interior. The outside is very imposing and rugged looking whereas the inside is a comforting and warm interior. This interior is influenced by both Hindu and Muslim style of ornamentation. On the walls, paintings depict various hunting scenes. There id also a lot artistic work on the walls. These are covered with intricate carvings; mosaic and minute mirror-work that make the halls look very majestic and imperial.

Jaipur is one of the hottest and most famous tourist attractions of India. A trip to India can never be complete without a visit to this place of immense historical and architectural importance. In its time it was among the best planned cities in the entire Asia and was the first planned city in India. Jaipur has a very happy amalgamation of the new and the old worlds. The charm and magic of Jaipur lies in the fact that it has a bit of everything- science, art and architecture, culture, religion, and history, ingrained into every inch of it. The warmth and hospitality of the people make a visit to the Pink city all the more memorable, remarkable and cherished. The best part of Jaipur is that even the hotels in Jaipur and the resorts have the flavor and fragrance of the ethnicity and hospitality of the place and its people. Most of the ITC hotels in Jaipur are not just places of shelter, but an experience in itself. Most of the leisure hotels in Jaipur have the ambience, feel and style of its rich and colorful history and culture. The treatment that the guests receive in the budget hotels in Jaipur is one of royalty and at the same time one of genuine affability.
