Kumbhalgarh Fort, Rajasthan

Been there recently?

Have you visited the great wall of India? Kumbhalgarh Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a wall that runs for more than 35 kilometres circling the fort. You would be thrilled and amazed looking at the sturdiness and architecture of the wall as you take a stroll on them, which at some sections are 15 feet thick. To get a feel of what a fort is and how it should look, visit the Kumbhalgarh fort and you will know. The massive fort, standing atop a hill at more than 3500 feet above sea level, has temples, gateways, and palaces apart from other structures. Rana Kumbha, one of the famous Rajput warriors this great country has given birth to, built this awe-inspiring fort during the 15th century. It is also the fort where the greatest Rajput warrior ever, Maharana Pratap, was born. A walk around the fort would educate, enrich and enlighten the visitors on various aspects of life and culture of the dynasties and Rajput clans who lived in the fort and have left behind a wonderful heritage and legacy. From September to February is the ideal time to visit the fort. Kumbhalgarh is about 47 kilometres from Rajsamand, the district headquarters, and about 340 kilometres from Jaipur. Udaipur railway station is about 83 kilometres away, and Falna railway station is about 80 kilometres away. Udaipur is the nearest air link.
