Combining the allure of ancient history with the advantages of a metropolis, the capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur creates a beautiful picture with its age old traditions and cultures. Renowned globally for its coloured gems, this bustling modern city is one of the three corners of the golden triangle that includes Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Everything about Jaipur narrates a tale about the legends of India, about its heroic battles and about love.
The beautiful city of Jaipur reflects grandeur and royalty through its splendid forts, flamboyant culture, warm hospitality, lip-smacking cuisine and never-ending shopping options.
Experience the magnificence of Jaipur by visiting the Amber Fort. Guarding the skyline of Jaipur, the fort seems to come out of a fairytale that makes you wonder and ponder in disbelief. Situated on a hilltop overlooking Maota Lake, the fort attracts the holidaymakers with its range of beautiful palaces, halls, gardens and temples. The most luring part of the Amber Fort is the elaborate mirror work displayed here that literally adds to the grandeur.
