Remember when you were a kid and you used to take the pillows from the couch and pile them up around something like a chair or the coffee table, but you’d leave a little path to crawl around or escape through…do you remember those days when you made yourself a FORT?
Guess what, if you make it to Amer, Rajasthan India, you will see a real fort.
Allow me to introduce you to Amber Fort. Constructed of red sandstone and marble in the 11th century, this ancient marvel was home to Rajput Maharajas and their families. Then, in its opulence it was built on 4 levels with each having its own courtyard. A far cry from those living rooms forts of old.
