I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Amber Fort


Amber, or Amer (no relation to the stone or the color amber), was the seat of government before Jai Singh II founded Jaipur. The fort is more of a palace than an army barracks, since it was also the home of the maharajahs, though it is highly protected, with a wall that snakes along the mountains like its counterpart in China.

I took so many pictures there that I am just going to post a few of the most interesting ones, rather than waiting until I have time to go through everything. Otherwise I'll never get to Bharatpur or the Taj Mahal or Petra.
