Amber Fort fondly called as Amber Palace has so many names to be called with. It has been declared as UNESCO Heritage Site and is located in the closeby city called Amer.

The Amber Palace has been historically linked with the Royal Family of Jaipur and is constructed in a true Rajasthani style. The best time to visit would be in the summers when the sunlight brightens up the fort or during the winters when the cold breeze brushes past you.
