Amber Fort - True reflection of royalty

Amber is located at a distance of 11 kilometers from Jaipur and was the old fort of the Kachhwaha clan of Amber, which used to be the capital, till it was moved to Jaipur. The walls and the ceiling of the Mahal are covered with a beautiful array of mirrors, which reflect any streak of light, so as to illuminate the entire room. Located 9 Kms north west of Jaipur, the Amber Fort was once the Capital of the Minas.

The construction of the Amber Fort began in the year 1592 and was started by Man Singh I, but it was finished by his descendant Jai Singh I. The exterior of the Fort is not in the least like its interiors. The outside is very imposing and rugged looking whereas the inside is a comforting and warm interior which is influenced by both Hindu and Muslim style of ornamentation. On the walls, are paintings depicting various hunting scenes, and there is also a lot of work on walls, which are covered with intricate carving, mosaic and minute mirror work that make the halls look very majestic and imperial.

सकराय माता / सिकराय मत / शाकम्भरी माता

राजस्थान में पड़े भीषण अकाल के समय इन्होने अकाल पीडितो के लिए कंद मूल फल उत्पन्न किये, इसी कारन इन्हें शाकम्भरी ( शाक + भरी ) भी कहते हे.
यह मूलतः खंडेलवाल समुदाय की कुल देवी के रूप में विख्यात हे.
इनका शक्ति पीठ शेखावाटी अंचल में सीकर के पास उदयपुर वाटी में हे. चैत्र और आश्विन माह के नवरात्रों में यहाँ मेल लगता हे जहा दूर दूर से श्रद्धालु आते हे.
इस शक्तिपीठ पर नाथ सम्प्रदाय का वर्चस्व रहा हे.
