We spent some 5 minutes exploring the place, a nice and typical rainwater storage facility from "Ancient" India !! Sure we have become modern, but are missing the solutions to today's problems from our ancestors !! Reached the main gate of Amer fort. The fort has many courtyards, rooms, gates and is almost like a maze in the inner courtyards. One can explore the fort for hours. We had planned to watch the light and sound show which was around 7.30 pm, and so we reached the fort at around 6, explored the fort and then headed for the show.
