Day 2

Amber Fort

After breakfast, head out to the Amber Fort, a Rajput extravaganza. For security and defence purposes, the impressive fort has a commanding view of the surrounding area, sheer walls and a curved route that leads to the palaces within. The fort is beautifully mirrored in Maota Lake, which stands adjacent to the Dilaram Garden.

The private apartments begun by Man Singh in the 17th century combine Hindu and Mughal styles and the Sheesh Mahal (Hall of Mirrors), its walls covered with tiny mirrors, becomes a dazzling fantasy with the light of a single match! Make sure you visit the Jag Mandir or the Hall of Victory, glittering with mirrors, Jai Mahal and the Kali Temple.
