Five monuments of Rajasthan were nominated for world heritage list of UNESCO in year 2011. State government of Rajasthan has to complete the necessary documentation before June 2012.

Amber (also pronounced Amer) is situated about 10 km away from Jaipur on Jaipur-New Delhi road. It was the capital of old Dhundar state of Jaipur and was governed by Kachawaha rulers. The town was originally named Ambikeshwara and was later abridged to Amber or Aamer.
Initially, the palaces at Amber were built by Raja Bharmal in 1558 and his successor Raja Man Singh. Later on some structure added by their descendents. Some of the structures get ruined with the time, some of the structures changed. But most of the structure is preserved and now maintaining by the state govt. The Amber fort as it exists today has been shaped by mainly Raja (ruler) Man Singh, Jai Singh I, and Jai Singh II.
The construction of Amber fort began in 1592 AD by Man Singh I and was completed, later, by his descendant Jai Singh I.
Amber palace complex mainly comprises Jaleb Chowk, Singh Pol, Diwan-e-Aam, Diwan-e-Khaas, Ganesh Pol, Yash Mandir, Sukh Mandir, Suhag Mandir, Shila Devi temple, Baradari, Bhool Bhulaiya, and Zanana Dyodi (women's apartments). During Jaipur Tour, one can experience the practical approach of Indian Vastu, architectural excellence and beautiful stone carving work accomplished manually at Amber palace and Amber Fort around four centuries back. It is an architectural wonder.
