Amber Fort, also known as Amer Fort, is one of the most tourist destinations in Jaipur that attracts a huge crowd because of its marvelous architecture. The structure and design of the fort carry artistic bits of Rajput style and overlooks the Maota Lake which further beautifies the surroundings.
The cobbled pathway on a large rampart makes way to a series of gates and then you are greeted with a humungous fort divided into several sections. The artistic work on the walls and doors is breathtaking. There are gardens, living spaces, terraces, and various other spaces that hint towards the lifestyle of the royal kings and queens.
Although the fort’s humungous and astonishing aesthetics will leave you impressed, there’s an additional element that will make your tour of the fort extra special- the light and sound show. Here’s a quick preview of the show:
It’s a 50-minute show that will give you a glimpse into the ancient lifestyle of the Royals in the old times. The show will give you a flashback of the history of the 600-year-old Amer fort and by the time it’s over you will have a better understanding as to how Rajasthan developed its own identity.
During the show, the colorful lights brighten up the fort in various shades that follow a certain pattern with the beats of music. Alongside the music, the narrative keeps on playing in the background and the ambiance gets more and more magical that would surely cast a charming spell on you.
The guests are seated at the bottom of the hill from where a clear view of the fort can be enjoyed. As the darkness grows in the sky the colorful lights brighten up the fort and with every beat, the music accentuates different parts of the fort in sync. The script has been penned by Gulzar while the voice of Amitabh Bachchan gives weight to the narration. Maestros like Ustad Sultan Khan and Shubha Mudgal have contributed to the vocals.
INR 295 (inclusive of GST)
