Amer fort is one of the best tourist destinations not only in Jaipur but the whole Rajasthan. The fort was built by Raja Man Singh with an amazing architecture that combines both Mughal and Hindu styles. The fort is made of red sandstone and marble. Amer and jaigarh are interconnected with a passage which is believed was used to escape at times of wars and escape the enemy..
