    Amber Fort

    India's most-visited forts: Amber Fort. The sandstone and marble monolith that stands atop a small hill.



    Why to visit this place

    It contains all of the distinguishing architectural traits that show up in postcards of the city, from the salmon-pink, honeycombed façade, supposed to represent the Hindu god Krishna's crown, to the geometric accents and rows of tiny windows. In 1799, the structure was built to allow royal women to see happenings on the street without being seen by the common public. Its 953 windows provide enough of light.




    Special Tip:

    Best way for tourists to hear these stories is to hire a private guide at the Amber Fort.
