Amer fort or Amber fort is a hill fort situated on a high hill in the Amer region on a distance of 11 km from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan state of India. This is the tourist attraction of Jaipur city. Amer’s town was originally settled by local minas, which at the time was won by Kachwaha Rajput King Man Singh I and constructed Amer Fort. Amer’s fort and palace are also known for the components of his artistic quaint Hindu architectural style. This fort filled with vast ramparts, door chains and roads made of stones, appears to be looking at the Maivatha Sarovar, right below the hill.
This charming and gorgeous castle made of red sandstone and marble has been built on four levels of the hill, each of which has a huge courtyard. In this, there is the courtyard of the Diwan-i-Aama, the common man, the Diwan-i-Khas, the special premises, the Sheesh Mahal or the Jai Temple and the Sukh Niwas. Situated artificially made of water streams in the Hukam Niwas part, it was very exciting in the hot summers here. This palace used to be the residence of the Kachwaha Rajput Maharajas and their families. Within the fort, near the main entrance of the palace, his aadhaa is a temple dedicated to the Goddess of Chaitanya Puja. Amer and Jaigad Durg are built on a mountain of the Aravali ranges and are connected by the way of a secret mountain tunnel. Used to carry the royal family at the time of danger to take Jaigad fort from Amard Durg
The famous fort of it still invites the producers of historical films to shoot. The main gate is called Ganesh Pol, whose carvings are very attractive. Artistic paintings were made on the walls of the walls and say that the Mughal emperor Jehangir became so angry with the art of those great artisans that he had plastered these paintings. These images are slowly starting to appear after crushing plaster. In Amar, it is the forty pillars with forty pillars, where the walls of the palace are lit on the walls of the palace. Elephant riding is a special attraction here, which is a matter of curiosity and joy for foreign tourists more than the country tourists.
In 2013, along with Amber Fort in the 37th World Heritage Meeting held in Fonn Penh in Colombia, five more kilograms of Rajasthan were included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
