Take a guide for the entire amber fort trip , there are Shesh mahal in other places / forts in Rajasthan but this is the best . Ask the guide to take pictures of you in the reflection of the mirrors.

Shesh Mahal is worth your time. It is a beautiful and intricate work of art with mirrors. Try taking your pictures through mirrors. It is fun.

The art and work was beautiful with lots of small mirror watching you. You can see some of the good art work on the walls on top and side.
