Description   

The most opulent structure in Amber Fort is Jai Mandir (Hall of Victory), the two-floored white marble pavilion overlooking Aram Bagh (third courtyard garden). It was built by Jai Singh I in the 17th century and consists of three parts: the Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of the Private Audience) on the ground floor, a hall named Sheesh Mahal (Glass Palace) adjacent to Diwan-i-Khas, and the Jas Mandir (Hall of Glory) on the upper floor. Behind the multi-lobed arches of Jai Mandir lies the dazzling interior of the structure. The walls and ceilings of all three parts are entirely covered in inlaid glass mirror mosaics (hence the name "Glass Palace") and white marble bas-reliefs. All three parts were used by the Maharajas to receive their close subjects.
