A very special way to reach the fort. Sheesh Mahal and the Ganesh Pol are the main attractions of the fort. The fort is well-preserved and you can purchase a plethora of things outside the fort.

It is a part of Amber Fort. Ganesh is a Hindu god, erected in the middle of the gate. So,it is named that way. When it was made some 300 years ago, it was a phase of amicable relationship between Hindu Rajput rulers and Mughal Kings. Amber benefited the most out of this relationship. Amer Fort palaces were decorated by... More

You can't miss this place once you are in the area. The architecture is intricate and breathtaking. Make sure you carry a bottle of water and some snacks as there are other forts a few steps away and can be a long walk.

The Red Fort is one of the most popular attractions in India. This Ganesh Gate is one of the better areas within the fort. Be sure to go to the top of the gate to look through the hand carved marble lattice windows that the sheltered women would look through.

The first sight of this Gateway takes your breath away. It is big, bold and beautiful! Situated inside the Amber Fort, and overlooking a huge terrace, this is one marvellous construction, painted with floral motifs using vegetable dyes..
