Cradled on the top of the Aravali Hills, lies the Amer Fort, one of the most magnificent palaces in India. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and also commonly known as the Amber Fort, this majestic building with its maze-like passages and serpentine staircases is an architectural masterpiece and with significant importance in Indian history. Built by one of the most trusted generals of Akbar, Maharaja Man Singh I in the year 1592, Amer Fort served as the main residence of the Rajput Rulers.
