Amber or Amer is situated about 10 km away from Jaipur on Jaipur-New Delhi road. It was the capital of old Dhundar state of Jaipur and was governed by Kachawaha rulers. The town was originally named Ambikeshwara and was later abridged to Amber or Aamer. Amer fort built by Raja Man Singh 1st in 1592. Lot of places of tourist interest and heritage importance are here in Amer, such as Maavtha, Dil-Aaram-Bag, Shila Devi Temple, Amer fort (Amber palace), Jagat Shiromani ka mandir, Jain temple, Amber masjid (mosque), and Nahar singh ji ki burj which must see by a tourist during Jaipur Tour. Initially, the palaces at Amber were built by Raja Bharmal in 1558 and his successor Raja Man Singh. Later on some structure added by their descendents. Some of the structures get ruined with the time, some of the structures changed. But most of the structure is preserved and now maintaining by the state govt. The Amber fort as it exists today has been shaped by mainly Raja (ruler) Man Singh, Jai Singh I, and Jai Singh II. The Amber Fort looks stunning, all-built in white marble and red sandstone. To add to its charm, Maotha Lake makes its foreground. The crystal mirror image of the Fort, on the still waters of the lake, seems to be a beautiful illusion.
