"Amber Fort (II)" Amber Fort Tip by Nprawira

Amber Fort, Jaipur: 113 reviews and 307 photos

  Ganesh Pol
by Nprawira

Once inside the Fort, you'll begin your trip from a courtyard where the elephant station is. There first thing to see would be the Shila Devi Temple, a small temple dedicated to the goddess Kali. From there, the imposing Ganesh Pol gateway will lead you to the interior of the Fort. Later on you can walk through inside the gateway and glance through the screened windows, meant for the ladies in ancient time. The hallways around the Fort are rather straight forward and if you follow them, you won't miss anything important. Just make sure that you visit the Sheesh Mahal, a chamber with tiny mirrors all over that'll shine the whole room with just a single candle.
