The Amber Fort


The Amber Fort is a few miles outside Jaipur, and is one of the most spectacular forts in India, at least partly because of its dramatic setting.


Our first view of the Amber Fort


Our Tour Manager Jen kindly took this picture of us


We made the final trip up to the fort by jeep . . .


. . . but many people made the trip by elephant


It's hard to describe the atmosphere, with elephants, Indian music and extensive views over the surrounding hills


There was a constant stream of elephants delivering tourists to the fort




The Mirror Palace


Careful restoration work was being carried out on the Mirror Palace
