Jaipur - Amber Palace

November 7, 2001

Our visit to the town of Amber and its famous palace were fantastic. Amber is a small town a little outside Jaipur. Amber is the ancient capital of the Jaipur state. The fort/palace's construction was begun in 1592 by Maharaja Man Singh. It overlooks the town of Amber an a nearby lake. The views are quite nice.
