Sadly, it eventually became deserted and ruined after Akbar left the city. Water scarcity caused this city to be abandoned.

Amber is a beautiful palace in the state of Rajasthan, featuring classic and romantic architecture. Its walls may appear rough and worn on the exterior, but the interior is truly stunning. Miniature paintings on the walls depict hunting and war scenes, as well as festivals, and precious stones and mirrors are embedded in the plaster. When visiting Amber, be sure to see the Jag Mandir or the Hall of Victory located inside the palace. It's a famous room with all four walls and ceiling decorated with glittering mirror pieces. The mirrors were imported from Belgium during that period. On the way to Amber Fort, there is a brief photography stop at Hawa Mahal, which is also known as the Palace of Winds.

A major highlight of the museum is the Armoury Museum that showcases an impressive collection of firearms, including pistols, blunderbusses, flintlocks, swords, rifles, and daggers. Most of these weapons were once used by the royal families of Jaipur. Later, go check out Jantar Mantar, the biggest observatory in the world that's made of stone and marble.

    Best tour in India

    My husband and I just took this tour and it could not have been better. The sights are spectacular and the extremely knowledgeable guides bring the temples and forts to live. We also got exposed to everyday life in India - walking through the bazars and meeting local families. This tour exposes one not only to the standard places but some hidden gems off the beaten path. All is done in comfort and all the details are taken care off so one can immerse oneself in the long history of India and its beauty.
