Take a trip to Amer Fort, perched high on a hill on the outskirts of the Pink City. Founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in 1727, it was once Jaipur’s capital. Every night, it hosts a light and sound show that illuminates the red sandstone fort and its stately grounds. The over 400-year-old Amer Fort is a complex network of palaces and fortified structures, with an exquisite sandstone façade. Its rooms are decked out in gold, silver and mirrored-tile mosaics. Within this majestic fort is a small Shiladevi Temple with carved silver doors featuring repoussé (raised relief) work.
