Ambar palace is positioned in Amber, the previous capital of the Kachhwaha Rajputs on a hillside overlooking Maotha Lake, 11 km from Jaipur on the Delhi - Jaipur road. Its construction was started by Raja Man Singh I, army commander of Mughal Emperor Akbar in 1592 and was finished by Mirza Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh, over a period of nearly two centuries. It is a typical fusion of Mughal and Hindu architecture, built in red sandstone and white marble.

The palace or the royal apartments is situated inside the enormous Amber fort complex with gateways, gardens, halls, stairways, pillared pavilions, temples and palaces. Some of the significant architectural marvels in the complex are the 'Diwan-E-Khas', the 'Sheesh Mahal' and the 'Jai Mandir' with delicate mirror work, the 'Diwan-E-Aam', the 'Sukh Niwas', the Shila Mata Temple and Kali temple along with the well laid out garden the 'Kesar Kyari'.
