This picture has been contributed by Dr. Vipin Khandelwal, Consultant Neurosurgeon, Department of Neurosurgery, Santokba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

This is a 'five-in-one' picture of one of the most famous monuments of Jaipur. The first and foremost feature is the Amer fort, located within an area of 4 km, around 11 km from the main city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. It is made of red standstone and marble, and is built on four levels each with its courtyard. It has a unique 'Sheesh mahal' or the 'palace of small mirror mosaics', with mirror pieces embedded within its walls that show countless reflections of people walking through its rooms; and, the 'Sukh Niwas', or the 'hall of pleasures', where the air blowing over the cascade of water running through the palace floor and walls, creates a natural cool environment, akin to modern air-conditioning.

The Amer palace overlooks the beautiful Maota lake, the second attraction, which is formed by rivulets of rain water descending from the hills and is the main supply of water to the Amer fort. The third feature is the beautiful Kesar Kyari Bagh or the 'saffron garden', that is located in the centre of the lake. It has a beautiful patterned design of a marble pathway leading through the garden, that is actually appreciated by looking out from above, through the small windows situated within the walls of the Amer palace. The fourth attraction is the Jaigarh fort in the background, at the top of the majestic 'hill of eagles' of the Aravalli hill ranges. The Jaigarh and the Amer forts are interconnected with each other by subterranean tunnels. The Jaigarh fort houses the world's largest cannon on wheels that has only been fired once in its lifetime. The final jewel in the crown is the Aravalli hill range itself, one of the oldest mountains in the world, even older than the Himalayas. The mountain range cradles the city of Jaipur, extends all the way to Delhi, and is home to many rivers, flora and fauna. Parts of the hill ranges lie scattered throughout the state of Rajasthan and have many important forts built on the various peaks. The hills have been silent witness to the feats of many valiant warriors, whose have made the supreme sacrifice, in an attempt to protect their homeland.
