Settled in the rugged hills of the Aravallis, Jaipur is the pristine jewel in the desert sands of Rajasthan. Jaipur is as remarkable for its marvelous architecture and town planning as it is for the lively spirit of the people who inhabit it. The city presents a unique synthesis of culture that has to be experienced in order to be appreciated. With its origin buried deep into the pages of history, the city still exudes a magical old world charm; an aroma of chivalry and romance is evident, despite having evolved into a city that is the hub of modern commercial activity in the region. Telltale signs of the glorious past and regal splendor of the city lie strewn across with gay abandon.
At a short distance of 11 kms from Jaipur, the Amber Fort Complex stands amidst wooded hills, with its forbidding ramparts reflected in the still waters of the Maota Lake below. One of the finest examples of Rajput architecture, the original palace was built by Raja Man Singh and additions were made later by Sawai Jai Singh. Within the palace are the Diwan-e-Aam or the “Hall of Private Audience” and the Sukh Niwas where a cool breeze blows across channels of water for the purpose of air-conditioning.
Here are the private chambers of the queens with windows having latticed screens so that the ladies could watch the proceedings of the royal court in privacy. There is also the Jai Mandir or the “ Temple of Victory ”, with its famed Sheesh Mahal, the scintillating “Hall of Mirrors”.
The western skyline is dominated by the extensive walls, watch towers and gateways of the Jaigarh Fort. It is one of the few military structures of medieval India preserved almost intact containing palaces, gardens open and covered reservoirs, a granary, an armory, a well-planned cannon foundry, several temples, a tall tower and the largest cannon the world – The Jain Ban
Perched atop a picturesque hill, the Nahargarh Fort offers a breathtaking view of the city below. Initially built by Sawai Jain Singh in 1734 A.D it was enlarged and given its present shape by Sawai Madho Singh in1885 A.D. Decorative motifs in some of the rooms are delightful.
