Kumbhalgarh


Kumbhalgarh Fort, KumbhalgarhKumbhalgarh Is Famous For Its Massive Fort And Wildlife Sanctuary.


Built by Rana Kumbha in the 15th Century, the Fort remained almost unconquerable except when it fell for a short while to the combined forces of Akbar, Malwa and Gujarat's Sultan.


The walls of this Fort extend over 36 km in length, making it the second largest wall after The Great Wall of China. There are more than 360 temples within the Fort. From the top of the Fort you can get a bird’s eye view of the surroundings below. Just 60 kms away from Udaipur, the Kumbhalgarh Fort is surrounded by seven great gates and seven ramparts.


The roads to the top of the Fort pass through deep ravines and thick forests before making their way to the different gates, namely, Arait Pol, Hulla Pol, Hanuman Pol, Ram Pol, Bhairava Pol, Paghra Pol, Top-khana Pol and Nimboo Pol. The Badal Mahal Palace lies on the top of the fort. It has beautiful rooms painted in green, turquoise and white. Rebuilt by Rana Fateh Singh, its claim to fame lies in the fact that Maharana Pratap was born here.


The Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is famous for enabling visitors to view wolves in their natural habitat. Its highlight is that visitors are allowed to enter the Sanctuary on horseback. The best time to visit the reserve is from October to June. There is a wide variety of bird life in Kumbhalgarh. These include the grey jungle fowl, peacocks, doves, parakeets, golden oriole, grey pigeons, bulbul, dove and kingfisher. There are trails inside the sanctuary which you can cover on foot.
