The Garden Guide

Amber Palace, Jaipur

The palace, built in red sandstone and white marble, is Amber fort complex. The fort on a hill overlooking the lake, is entered through the Dil-e-Aaram Garden. A flight of stairs leads to the Diwan-E-Am (Hall of Public Audience). There are fine gardens in the lake below the fort. The ladies of the palace, it is said, used to travel by moonlight and by aerial ropeway from their harem quarters to the garden in the lake below the palace. This garden was planted with white night-scented flowers. We hope the story is true.
