Amber Fort Jaipur Architecture

Amber Fort Jaipur is the perfect illustration that Jaipur’s story is not only limited to the feats of bravery performed by its soldiers and kings. However, it also includes the support of science and architecture, which is evident in the building of this fort, which is awe-inspiring and the whole city.

Jaipur was historically the first planned city in India. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh patronised the building of the town according to the traditional Rajputana style of architecture. Vidyadhar Bhattacharya, the principal designer from Bengal, was in charge of making sure that the city’s plan was built on the principles of Shilpa Shastra.

The same principles were followed throughout building Amber Fort Jaipur. The most important structures were constructed using sandstone that is plentiful throughout the state.

“Amer ki Sheela Devi, Chandpol Ka Hanuman. Sanganer ka Sanga Baba, Jeet Laya Raja Maan.”

What is the meaning of this line? I’ll discuss that somewhat below; however, before you know that, you need to be aware that one of the Maharajas of Jaipur Raja Maan Singh, who was also a well-known Polo player, set up the temples of Sheela Devi Hanuman and Sanga Baba (a saint) in the three areas of Jaipur (west south, west as well as north).

Since then, numerous incidents have strengthened the local belief that Jaipur is protected from natural and natural disasters.
If it was the floods of 1981 or the terrorist attack of 2008, there was no incident in Jaipur. The bombs of 26 were discovered close to Chandpol Gate and nine closer to Sanganeri Gate. There were 35 explosives set off by terrorist groups that did not go off, saving the lives of many innocent victims.

Did You Know something cool about Jaipur

Did you know that Jaipur still has Maharajas? The name of the Maharaja is Padmanabh Singh, and he was named the Maharajah of Jaipur at the tender thirteen years old. 

He doesn’t fight for his life; instead, you’ll see him on the front cover of a magazine or even via Instagram as he strikes an exquisite pose within the royal rooms at Jaipur City Palace.

He plays polo, and it’s improbable that he is a pro in it, as it is through his veins. The sport is in his blood! Polo was a game that most Maharajas in Jaipur played, so it’s not surprising that the young Padmanabh Singh picked up this sport early. He’s also been a part of India at international Polo championships and a member of the Guards Polo Club in England.
