AMBER FORT

Amber Fort or Amer Fort is a fort located in Amber, Rajasthan, India. Amber is a town with an area of 4 square kilometres (1.5 sq mi) located 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. The town of Amber and the Amber Fort was built by Maharaja Man Singh kachawaha rajputs. Located high on a hill, it is the principal tourist attraction in Jaipur. 


Amber Fort is known for its artistic style elements. With its large ramparts and series of gates and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake, which is the main source of water for the Amber Palace. Hence, the Amber Fort is also popularly known as the Amber Palace.


At the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in 2013, Amber Fort, along with five other forts of Rajasthan, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the group Hill Forts of Rajasthan.
