Amer (ili Amber)(: [ameɾ]; hindi: आमेर, amer ) je bio nekadašnji grad u indijskoj državi Rajasthan, koji danas čini dio šire teritorije Općinske korporacije Jaipur. Osnovao ga je Meena radža Alan Singh (iz klana Chanda), pri čemu se prvi put spominje 967. Oko godine 1037. ga je osvojio Kachwaha klan Radžputa. U njemu je vladar Raja Man Singh I krajem 16. i početkom 17. vijeka sagradio znamenitu Amersku tvrđavu. Amer je bio glavni grad Kachwaha sve do 1727. kada je Amer Sawai Jai Singh II osnovao novu prijestolnicu devet kilometara južnije pod imenom Jainagara (Jaipur). Tamo su se premjestile sve upravne zgrade, a ostali su jedino svećenici hrama Shila Devi .
