Amer Fort in Jaipur

Our next stop was Jaipur west of Agra about 250 kms away but 5-6 hours trip on the car because of elephants and camels on the road again..The main attraction was the fort or palace of  Amer, situated high on a hill about 11 k from  the town of Jaipur.  Amer fort was ruled by Raja Man Singh and later on by yours truly…. see below proof of it.A maharajah in front of is temple with one of his wife
