. : Amber Fort, as related to us by our wonderful guide Madan, was the fort built by the Maharaja *. Maharajas were the rulers of Hindustan before India was united. These first pictures are from the entrance to the fort. The Maharaja’s wife, Madan told us, would shower him with roses as he entered the doorway into his fort after a long day’s work, through the center window.
