The of Amber grew in population under the rule of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in the early eighteenth century. The Maharaja founded the city of Jaipur in 1726 as the capital of his princely state. Using red and pink sandstone, the new palace was built in Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles within next six years. Its outer wall was finished later by Maharaja Jai Singh II.
