Sheesh Mahal is perhaps misleading name. There are no walls of mirror but every wall has thousands of mirrors, all tiny ones. I can only imagine how it will look in the night with a candle reflected from so many mirrors. Pity the monument closes at 6. Will Government consider night visits?

It was a wonderful experience. The colorful walls, mirror works and the colours used were treat to our eyes. We should preserve and protect this monuments for the years to come to tell our future generation about the bright colourful historical facts.

The most beautiful structure of Marble with intricately embedded mirrors of various and sizes for beautiful queens. The best seen at night with star like reflections of self and lights from mirrors. Not to be missed at all cost

This is locked now but a good guide would tell you the importance and actual reflection angles within the Mahal.

To know & understand Indian engineering to beat the extreme heat & cold of Rajasthan, one must visit this place. This great structure is in the Amber fort built to protect the royal family from the chilling winter.
