The hills surrounding Amer Palace has a security wall, commonly called great wall of Amer on the lines of Great Wall of China. Of course, there can be no comparison between the two, as the one in China is pretty long and runs into thousands of kilometer!!
This wall was meant to keep the intruders out and soldiers would keep a strong vigil on the surrounding areas from the watch towers. In a way, this wall served as a first boundary of the Amer town.
Currently, less than one-fourth of this wall has been restored & maintained, while the rest is fast crumbling and needs urgent attention.
Amer is a UNESCO World heritage site. Although Amer palace is believed to be built during 16th century, we don’t know for sure when these protective ramparts were built.
