The sheesh mahal means glass palace. The sheesh mahal in the mehrangarh fort is treat for the eyes. Its a visual miracle. You are not allowed to go inside it but you can click pictures and indulge in its beauty from outside. The hall is beautifully decorated with stain glass and it was used by the royals for fresh air. The beautiful artwork on the walls and ceiling along with the royal artifacts are really beautiful.

Amer Fort is a fort located in Amer, Rajasthan , India . Amer is a town with an area of 4 square kilometres (1.5 sq mi) located 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) fromJaipur , the capital of Rajasthan . Located high on a hill, it is the principal tourist attraction in Jaipur. The town of Amer was originally built byMeenas , and later it was ruled by Raja Man Singh (December 21, 1550 – July 6, 1614). Amer Fort is known for its artistic Hindu style elements. With its large ramparts and series of gates and cobbled paths, the fort overlooks Maota Lake,which is the main source of water for the Amer Palace.Constructed of red sandstone and marble , the attractive, opulent palace is laid out on four levels, each with a courtyard. It consists of the Diwan-i-Aam, or Hall of Public Audience, the Diwan-i-Khas, or Hall of Private Audience, the Sheesh Mahal (mirror palace), or Jai Mandir, and the Sukh Niwas where a cool climate is artificially created by winds that blow over a water cascade within the palace. Hence, the Amer Fort is also popularly known as theAmer Palace . The palace was the residence of theRajput Maharajas and their families. At the entrance to the palace near the forts Ganesh Gate, there is a temple dedicated to Shila Devi , a goddess of the Chaitanya cult, which was given to Raja Man Singh when he defeated the Raja of Jessore, Bengal in 1604. ( Jessore is now in Bangladesh).This palace, along with Jaigarh Fort , is located immediately above on the Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles) of the same Aravalli range of hills. The palace and Jaigarh Fort are considered one complex, as the two are connected by a subterranean passage. This passage was meant as an escape route in times of war to enable the royal family members and others in the Amer Fort to shift to the more redoubtable Jaigarh Fort. Annual tourist visitation to the Amer Palace was reported by the Superintendent of the Department of Archaeology and Museums as 5000 visitors a day, with 1.4 million visitors during 2007. At the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee held inPhnom Penh , Cambodia , in 2013, Amer Fort, along with five other forts of Rajasthan, was declared aUNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the groupHill Forts of Rajasthan .

Situated within the compound of Mehrangarh Fort is the glass palace of Jodhpur, popularly known as Sheesh Mahal. This magnificent piece of architecture is adorned with walls of mirror work that stretch across ceilings and to the floors. It is superimposed by the mirror work of brightly painted religious figures cast in plaster.Mehrangarh Fort still bears the imprints of cannonball attacks courtesy the armies of Jaipur on its second gate. Chiselled and sturdy, the fort is known for its exquisite latticed windows, carved panels, intricately decorated windows and walls of Moti Mahal, Phool Mahal and Sheesh Mahal.

A characteristic feature of the royal Rajput architecture, the Sheesh Mahal in the Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur is a treat to the eye of the beholder. Also known as Glass Palace of Jodhpur, this marvellous piece of architecture is decked from ceiling to floor with intricate mirror work. These decorative ornaments are complemented well with the brightly coloured paintings of various religious figures made in plaster.The numerous decorative panels show deities like Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva and Parvati, Lord Krishna playing the flute, and Lord Rama among others showing the strong influence of religion and culture on the art of the time. The ceilings and floors are inlaid with mirrors, earning the room the title of Hall of Mirrors. The blue, green, silver, and gold ornaments suspended on the ceiling as well as the grand European chandelier are later additions to this hall. Mehrangarhs Sheesh Mahal was the bedchamber of Maharaja Ajit Singh who reigned over Jodhpur between 1679 and 1724.

Seems to be the main attraction of Jodhpur: Luckily, despite visiting during the usually swelteringly hot month of May, getting there during the morning proved to be a wise decision as it is somewhat cooler then. It opens at 9am, which isn’t that early to be honest, but the foreigner ticket price does at least include an audio guide available in foreign languages such as English, Spanish, and even Korean (a passport suffices as a bond for the audio guide set). The audio guide is very detailed and fairly interesting and takes you round the various parts of the fort. Some great views can be taken in from the fort of the “Blue City” below.All in all, I would recommend this fort to anyone visiting Rajasthan, however one night in the city is likely enough, since (perhaps owing to it being low season) I didn’t find much else to do - or even many cafes or restaurants open - in Jodhpur during my visit.
