The fort-palace of Amber (pronounced 'A-mer') is about 10km from Jaipur. The guidebooks like to describe it as ‘delicate pink’, although the outer walls and some of the interior are a rich sand-yellow. Only the interior approaches any kind of pink, and even there yellow predominates. The fort is home to a colony of langur monkeys, who perform acrobatics on the battlements and view the tourists with languid indifference.
