Amber is a ruined city of Rajasthan state, India. It was the former capital of Jaipur state. Amber Fort is well known place in that city. Amber was founded by the Meenas and was a flourishing settlement as far back as in 967. Around 1037, it was usurped by the Kachwaha clan of Rajputs, who ruled it until it was deserted. The picturesque situation of Amber at the mouth of a rocky mountain gorge, in which nestles a lovely lake, has attracted the admiration of all travellers, including Victor Jacquemont and Reginald Heber. It is seen to be a remarkable example for its combined Rajput-Mughal architecture. The old palace was begun by Raja Kakil Dev when Amber became his capital in 1036, although much modification was added during the reign of Raja Man SinghI in the 1600s. Among the chief building is the Diwan-i-Khas and the elaborately paited Ganesh Poll built by the Mirza Raja Jai Singh I.
