Amber Fort is located in the town of Amber near Jaipur.  It was the ancient citadel of the ruling Kachhawa family of Amber.  The fort borders the Maota Lake.  Built over the remnants of an earlier structure, the palace complex was commenced under the reign of Raja Man Singh, Commander in Chief of Akbar’s army and a member of the Emperor's inner circle of nine courtiers, in 1592.  The initial structure of the fort was completed by his descendant, Jai Singh I.  Amber was modified by successive rulers over the next 150 years, until the Kachwahas shifted their capital to Jaipur during the time of Sawai Jai Singh II (1688 - 1743).  One may take an elephant of a jeep up to the fort.
