The City of Jaipur was built when they ran out of room in Amber, but while the new city has many beautiful places, including the royal palace complex, there is nothing there as extraordinary as Sheesh Mahal. I was amazed that we were actually allowed to walk around and through most of the hall. I mean, its not large, but... More

During my visit to Amber Fort (Although all fort has enormous historical significance and is the best example of fine architecture ) but Sheesh Mahal (Mirrio Palace) is one of the most exciting feature of this fort. Sheesh Mahal Suite is stunning, with every inch of the ceiling and walls ornately painted and ornamented with mirror mosaics and it shows... More

An amazing display of innumerable images of a single lighted candle will make your heart fill with joy. One envies the people who inhabited this palace for enjoying the brilliant sight every evening. One is amazed by the skills of craftsman who could assemble such magnificent buildings.

Thousands of tiny mirrors are embedded in this chamber adjoining the Aram Bagh, the pleasure garden, on the south side of the second courtyard in the Amber Fort. The flame of a single candle (or a cellphone light) transforms this room into a starlit sky. Try to take photos reflecting your face in one of larger mirrored panels at eye... More

Must visit when in Jaipur!!!! To move around in Jaipur please BOYCOTT THE AUTOS. DOWNLOAD AN APP CALLED UBER IN YOUR PHONE AND USE THEM. Cheaper than autos and avoid the hassle of bargaining with the low lives.

The place is beautiful and takes you back in history to appreciate the royal opulence and love for all things artistic and beautiful around then! It was a lovely experience except for the unruly crowd.

How amazing! We were a group of students visiting the Golden Triangle so we were on 5 different elephants going up the hill. I would suggest to partner up with whom you want to and take pictures of each other on the elephants. Merchants are selling their stuff and you can negotiate down to almost nothing so be fearless !... More
