Creamy, aged arches greeted us at Amer Fort (also known as Amber Fort) near Jaipur, India. In the section known as Sattais Kacheri, the carefully outlined, exquisitely beautiful arches with scalloped shapes become even more interesting as we moved around them, noticing what seemed to be an endless maze.
The columns stand soldier-like in just-so order. But with sunlight streaming into the area at various times of day, the ivory marbled columns take on a movement of sorts that invites lingering. After all, you really do want to see the next series of patterns on the floor.
Beautiful arches of Amer Fort frame the view of the city below in a grand manner all their own.
