A fort and a wall; well, not the great wall of China but it is significant in its own way. Kumbhalgarh fort, located about a little more than 80 Kms from Udaipur in Rajasthan is yet another UNESCO world heritage site. It comes under the forts and palaces category. It is the second largest fort in Rajasthan, right after the Chittorgarh fort. Apart from temples and palaces in the fort, there is a long wall that was built around the fort. This wall is one of the longest walls in the world measuring about 36/38 kms. The fort of Kumbhalgarh was built during the reign of Rajput ruler Rana Kumbhalgarh in the 15th century on the Aravali hills. It is also known to be the birth place of Maharana Pratap. There are several stories about the fort that was literally impregnable.
During our visit to the fort, we walked a good distance on the wall from where one could see the stretches of the Aravali Hills and also the deserts.
