Kumbhalgarh, a small town in district Rajsamand is known world wide for its great history and architecture. Here lies the great Kumbhalgarh fort, a Mewar Fortress on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills. The Fort was built during 15th century by Maharana Kumbha. This almost invincible fort is the highest and most formidable fort in the state of Rajasthan.  Standing majestically at an altitude of 1180m high, it represents the past glory of the Rajput rulers, holds it that even the mighty Mughals couldn’t capture it alone and it took the combined armies of Delhi, Amber and Marwar to breach its defences. Seven huge and imposing gates stand like sentinels at the approaches and seven ramparts, one being folded within another with crenelated walls strengthened by rounded bastions and immense watch towers, make this an impregnable mountain fortress. It’s serpentine 15 kilometres long wall is thick and broad enough for eight horses to ride abreast. This wall is second longest only to the ‘Great Wall of China’. This grand fort houses 360 temples within the walls. Climb to the top to take in a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.
