The 16th century Amber Fort here will soon come alive to its history with an exclusive sound and light show.

The programme would serve as a guide to tourists, informing them about the historical background of the fort and the ancient anecdotes associated with it.

"It might take a few months for the show to start," said Urmila Rajoriya, additional director Rajasthan tourism department.

Every part of the fort would be illuminated with laser lights and a dramatic commentary would run alongside, giving a detailed description of the place along with the historical tales associated with it.

The state government is also planning to set up a crafts bazaar at the fort.It will be developed in Panna Meena Kund, which is being renovated at a cost of Rs.400 million.

The Amber Fort, set amid picturesque and rugged hills, is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Constructed by Raja Man Singh I in 1592 and completed by Sawai Jai Singh I, the fort is made in red sandstone and white marble.
