There is so much beauty to behold in and around Jaipur. The buildings have a distinctive dusty pink colour, which is why it’s known as the “pink city of India”. And not too far away in Amer, or Amber as some call it, is one of my favourite sights in the whole country: Amer Fort, also known as Amber Fort or the Amber Palace. I had never heard of this place before and I was totally blown away by it. It’s a sprawling fort located high up on a hill where you could easily spend a whole day. The views are breathtaking.
