The fortress was built in the 16th century, and comprises of hundreds of now empty chambers, dungeons, servants quarters, halls of private and public audience, and delightful enclosed gardens.
You will stroll through a labyrinth of passages, glittering halls of mirrors and emerging into stunning belvederes.
Near the entrance to the palace is a small temple devoted to the goddess Kali with solid silver doors.
Please note that, although it is possible to take an elephant ride up to the Amber Palace, we would not advise this. The elephants do not have the best facilities and this can feel like tourist parade rather than a genuine experience.
