Jaipur Amber Fort & Jaigarh Fort Visit
Day 1: Arrival Jaipur
Meeting and assistance upon arrival as our representatives welcome you and escort you to your car. Later you will be taken to visit:
About 11km north of Jaipur stands the spectacular Amber Fort built by Maharaja Man Singh. A wonderful example of Rajput architecture, it overlooks a lake which reflects its many terraces and pavilions. Amber is also known for the spectacular Sheesh Mahal, Jai Mandir, Diwan-i-Am, Sikh Niwas and the small Kali Temple.
Later in the afternoon you will be taken for lunch and then continue your sightseeing visiting:
Located on one of the peaks of the Aravalli range of hills is built about 400 m above the Amber Fort. It provides an excellent view of Aravalli hills and the Amber Fort down below. The fort features a cannon named “Jaivana”, which was manufactured in the fort precincts and was then the world’s largest cannon on wheels.
Stands on the edge of the Aravalli Hills. The view of the city from the fort is breath-taking. The fort was originally named Sudarshangarh, but it became known as Nahargarh, which means ‘abode of tigers’. The fort was constructed as a place of retreat on the summit of the ridge above the city. Walls extended over the surrounding hills, forming fortifications that connected this fort to Jaigarh, the fort above the old capital of Amber.
