Amber is located at a distance of 11 kilometers from Jaipur. This is the old fort of Jaipur, which used to be the capital in the Jaipur. The construction of the Amber Fort began in the year 1592 and was started by Man Singh I, but it was finished by his descendant Jai Singh I. The exterior of the Fort is not in the least like its interiors. The outside is very imposing and rugged looking whereas the inside is a comforting and warm interior which is influenced by both Hindu and Muslim style of ornamentation.
Jaigarh Fort is located at a distance of 15kms from Jaipur. Also called the Victory Fort, the Jaigarh Fort stands in the middle of thorn-scrub hills that impart a sterner look to the already forbidding Fort. The Jaigarh fort was built to defense of Amer, so one should not be amazed to find that the fort unlike most palaces and forts of Jaipur is quite plain and simple. The highlight of the tour of Jaigarh Fort is definitely the Jaivana, which is the world's largest cannon on wheels. It was built in Jaigarh's foundry in the year 1721. Many say that the cannon was only used once and the ball fell some 35kms away on a village.
