A perfectly manicured garden known as the Kesar Kyari adds to the beauty of the Fort. The imposing structure is built of red and white sandstone. The top of the fort can be reached by riding on elephants while soaking in the timeless beauty of Jaipur.

One of the most exquisite creations in the Amber Fort is the Sheesh Mahal. Literally translated, it means the Palace of Mirrors. A big hall that is filled with thousands of tiny mirrors all over, the Sheesh Mahal never fails to amuse onlookers. It is said that during the days of yore, a single tiny candle would illuminate the entire hall. The tiny and intricate mirrors are preserved till date and look as royal as they did then.
