Me and my 3 friends reached jaipur and were ready to spend a day in jaipur
We started the day by visiting this epic fort called amer fort.
We were near the jaipur railway station and we took a cab directly from there. It took us around 30 minutes reaching one of the most beautiful forts in india.
On reaching the fort we decided to opt for the guide which helped us knowing about the place.
We also had few snacks and lemon soda from the nearby shops. It was quite delicious.
One can go by walk, jeep ride or elephant ride and we decided to go by foot.
It was majestic and very pictureque. It evokes the medieval times very easily and was beautiful both from the outside and the inside
