Unseen Rajasthan Special-Abhaneri


Abhaneri is less than 2 hours drive away. The stepwell, Chand Baori, is a square shaped well, fairly deep possibly the deepest stepwell in Indo-Pakistan region, with thousands of steep steps on three sides and a deep green pool at the bottom. The adjacent temple is presursor of Khajuraho style by 200 years.

Unseen Rajasthan Special-Amber Fort-Jaipur


Man Singh one of the Kachhawah rulers built the Amber (Amer) fort in 1600 AD, with a delightful blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture and was finally completed by Sawai Jai Singh I in the 18th century. Thus, it took a full two centuries to build, much of it having been made in the 1500s. Holding a history as old as 7 centuries, this place vibrates with its legendry past, in the archaeological history. In the days of yore, the Amer Fort used to be a palace, an administrative headquarter as well as a strategic military bastion

"Sheesh Mahal" or Palace of Glass.
This is one of the most famous and one of its own kind of Palace Room in the World and in the History.The Room is made of glass pieces completely and when two candles are burned together in the rooms and are moved from left to right and vice verca it seems that Stars and moon are shining together.

As Queens in ancient times were not supposed to sleep in open air but they wished to see the stars and moon and just to fulfill their wish King ordered his architects to make Galaxy in their room only and then this Amazing piece came out.
