Ranking at the very top of this list of Top 10 Places to Visit in Jaipur is the magnificent Amer Fort. Looking rock solid and majestic on its perch upon a hillock overseeing the Jaipur City, Amer Fort has been part of Jaipur Sightseeing Tour itineraries from the day it opened for tourism.
An intricate network of exquisite palaces, halls and pavilions, the Amer Fort grabs your attention the moment you near it. Towering walls of thick stones snake their way up to the main entrance - you can ride an elephant to the top or take the jeep. Either way, it will be the beginning of an experience to remember.
Once at the top, you will find yourself marvelling at the intricate carvings and bejewelled designs on the grand arched gateways, halls and palaces. Most noteworthy of all, that make the Amer Fort top the list of places to visit in Jaipur, are the Halls of Public and Private Audiences, and the Sheesh Mahal - the Palace of Mirrors, which has more than a thousand tiny mirrors reflecting you. You can also visit the Turban Museum, the armoury, the royal kitchen, the gigantic tanks, and other parts of the Amer Fort.
Evening experiences such as Light & Sound Shows and Classical Dance performances, which are much akin to the performances that the kings enjoyed in the yesteryears, further enhance the standing of the Amer Fort in the list of top 10 places to visit in Jaipur. The Amer Fort is also open for Night Tourism in Jaipur.
