Photographer's Note

Amer Fort is commonly known as Amber Fort or Amber Palace. It is situated on top of a hill in Amer which is just a few miles outside Jaipur. I have done a WS so that you can get an idea of how large it is. If you look closely you may see some elephants.

The sandstone structure is magnificent and a top tourist attraction. Once this palace was lived in by the Rajput Maharajas. Getting to the entrance requires either a walk uphill or an elephant ride. So of course we took the ride up and walked down! Taking photos from on top of an elephant is not easy but I took this one of a family on the elephant in front of us. I will post an image from inside the fort another day.
