The Amber experience
Recently spent a few days in Jaipur, Rajasthan, visiting all the imperial palaces and forts 🙂 It was a wonderful adventure, going back into the royal ages and trying to relive the grandeur of the past. The Pink City is so enthralling and has so much to offer that the five days I spent there didn’t seem to be enough and I can’t wait to get back!
Here are some photos of the Amber Fort – one of the most prominent attractions there. This fort was built several centuries ago and has a very colorful history. You can get to hear the entire story during the “Sound and Light show” there.
Do hire a good guide when you visit, so that you get to know all the important aspects of the fort. We spent an exhaustive three hours touring the fort and ended our visit by having lunch at the wonderful restaurant in the fort called 1135 AD.
Next, visited a handloom store nearby and checked out some local “Bandhej” or “Bandini” saris. This was the best possible way to end the outing 🙂
