Comments / pictures
One of its Jaipurs popular tourist spots is the Amer fort that was constructed in the 16thcentury by Rajput King Man Singh. Located nearby is the village of Amer after which the Amer fort is named. But another thing, which makes the village special today are the number of elephants it houses. About 110 elephants are taken care of here by the mahouts or elephant riders of the village.

This is Indias first and the worlds third elephant village.
