This is a picture shot at Jagat Shiromani Temple, Amer.
it is a beautiful amalgamation of various architectural style of its time. Clearly, the Rajput, Mughal and south Indian style are predominant here. Add to this, the exquisite blend of different stones – marble, sand stone and black stone. The resultant architectural style is pretty unique.
One can see various design elements,unique to each architectural styles.
Since the rulers of Amer were senapati or commander of Mughal army, the Rajput kings of amer had participated in many battles right from Kabul in the west to Bengal in the east. Some of battles even took them towards Deccan plateau. This would have possibly, inspired them to pick the best of each architectural style and create unique style.
