  The Amber Fort
by Nprawira
 
 

Situated on the outskirts of Jaipur, Amber Fort served as the capital of ancient Jaipur state until 1727. The fort is perched up on a hill and there are 2 options to go up there. The first is the more direct one, which is a 5 minute ride in a jeep costing Rs 120 return. The second is a more popular option, which is on the back of an elephant for Rs 400 return. Since the death of several tourists, killed by an elephant ran amok, the authoriy has tried to limit the number of passengers on each elephant and the number of rides it can carry. So the queue tends to be longer now, which can be a 1/2 hour wait on a busy day, or you can find that there would be no more rides once you get to the front of the line.
