Wonderful Kumbhalgadh

After coping up with squeezing workload, I decided to go on an excursion. So I choose Kumbhalgadh to being befitting to my criteria. The place overall is worth visiting whether in a couple or with family. The stay was at Kumbhalgadh Forest Retreat where we experienced excellent ambience, service oriented and polite staff, relishing meals and not the least tranquility. I was in dilemma of whether should we go there amid orange heat, but to my surprise, there was 30+ temp!! Except the poor phine networks, there is not a single loophole of the place. One must visit the land of gallantry, Nature and peace. Really my Incredible India!!

Kumbhalgarh Overview

Kumbhalgarh lies in the southern part of Rajasthan and is located at about 105 km from the western part of Udaipur. Kumbhalgarh, which is also known as Kumbhalmer is a Mewar fortress, located in the district of Rajsamand in the state of Rajasthan.

History of Kumbhalgarh

Kumbhalgarh was virtually inaccessible in earlier times and the Rana Kumbha of Mewar designed it keeping the defensive aspect of the fort in his mind. The fort designed by him was at a height of 3,500 feet above sea level, which is comfortable enough to provide clear views of the areas of Ajmer and Marwar.
Although Kumbhalgarh was built in the 15th century it was extended during the 19th century. The site of Kumbhalgarh was earlier a fort, and was under the dynasty of Prince Samprati. He was the Jain descendant of the Mauryan emperors of India. The fort houses more than 360 temples, including 300 ancient Jain ones and the remaining are Hindu temples.
Things to do in KumbhalgarhKumbhalgarh Fort is constructed on a hilltop 1100 metres high. It is the most important and popular fort in Mewar after Chittaurgarh. The perimeter walls of the fort sprawl across 36 km, making it the third longest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China and the Great Wall of Gorgan in Iran. Located 82 km from Udaipur in the northwestern part, the fort was under occupation until the 19th century, after which it was opened for the public as a museum.
Other than the ancient fort, the Wildlife Sanctuary of Kumbhalgarh is also popular. It covers a land area of 57778 square km and consists of different wild animals and birds. The religious places here include the temple of Muchchal Mahavir, which is popular for artistically carved statues, and the Jain temple of Ranakpur that was built in the year 1438.
