"Mirror Grandeur"

Sheesh Mahal is one of the main reasons contributing to the numerous tourists visiting Amer Fort everyday; and to call it beautiful would simply be an understatement. This winter palace in the fort complex got its name because the entire structure is decorated with mirrors (sheesha in Hindi). Lavish and stylish, this palace gives us a glimpse of Rajput grandeur from the bygone days. It is said that the main resting room is entirely covered with crystal clear mirrors imported all the way from Belgium. Today however, this section of the palace is closed for public viewing due to ongoing restoration work. Apart from the mirrors, Sheesh Mahal also flaunts single piece marble pillars with delicate work that reflects both Rajputana and Mughal designs, not only providing support, but also adding to the beauty of the place. It goes without saying, your visit to Jaipur is not complete till you have visited Sheesh Mahal.
