Amber Fort at Jaipur.

Guide and Photos about visiting Amber Fort which is above Jaipur in India.

Located along the Jaipur to Delhi road and around 11 kilometres outside of Jaipur City, Amber Fort has an entry fee of 100 Rupees for non-Indians and is open every day - the ticket office is located by Chand Pol.
You can walk up via a cobbled footpath and go into the fort through Suraj Pol gate - which means you get lovely views of everywhere on the way. Alternatively it is also possible to hitch a ride on an elephant and finally you can drive or be driven up to Chand Pol where there is, however, very limited parking.

Amber Fort and Jaigarh Fort could be considered to be one entity in effect since they are so close to each other and apart from defensive battlements they are actually also connected to each other by a subterranean passage. There is also a magnificent series of defensive walls and fortifications which link all of this to Nahargarh Fort which sits above Jaipur City.

Visiting Amber Town which is situated pretty much below the massive Amber Fort near Jaipur.

This small town is actually worth having a wander around either before or after visiting the two forts - there are quite a few ruined buildings but they are quite interesting to see.
