Earlier a city, Amer Fort, used to be known to be a home to the royal family of Jaipur. The fort has now become one of the most treasured tourist destinations. The grand architecture, spectacular design, age-old artillery, solemn Shila Devi temple and magnificent Sheesh Mahal make it impressively alluring. But there are other things yet to be discovered around Amer (yes! other than our very own chilling spot Nahargarh).
Read on to know what are those five things that you can try your hands on your next trip to Amer.
