Amber Palace(Amer fort)/ Jai Garh (Victory Fort)/ Nahargarh (Tiger ) Fort with a private guide
Amber Fort also known as Amer Fort is located in Amber, 11 km from Jaipur, Rajasthan state, India. Amber Fort is located in Amber (Jaipur), which used to be the capital of the Kachhwaha clan, till Jaipur was made the official capital in 1727. The Amber Fort looks stunning, all-built in white marble and red sandstone. To add to its charm, Maotha Lake makes its foreground. The crystal mirror image of the Fort, on the still waters of the lake, seems to be a beautiful illusion. Amber Fort is usually pronounced as Amer Fort. In 1592, construction of the Fort was started by Raja Man Singh I. However, the Amber Fort took its present form during the reign of Raja Jai Singh I.
The rose coloured granite road climbs steeply to the gateway of Amber. On either side of the road are forests, temples, gardens
Kali Temple ( Goddess Durga ) is situated behind the Singh Pole and reached from Jaleb Chowk by a ramp which opens upon a landing before a silver plated door, providing entrance to the temple.

Ravi gave me an extensive tour of Jaipur, he's a fast walker as he likes to cover alot during a tour, so you need to tell him to slow down, he just wants you to see as much of his city as possible before you clunk out from the heat. I would totally recommend him for those who like it fast paced and also let him know how much you can do and he will work with you at your pace.
