Visit Kumbhalgarh Fort, a Hidden Treasure Of Rajasthan

by Rajasthan Leaf Rajasthanleaf provides best Tour and Travels Ser
Rajasthan is a beautiful place that has a history of brave warriors who fought for their dignity and land. In the wake of the recognition Rajasthan has got for being a culture hub, a large number of tourists visit this land of forts and havelis. Although the state has profited from the influx of travellers, it has become difficult for those travellers who wish to experience the tradition and culture but without the crowds.
It is almost impossible to imagine enjoying the beauty of City Palace (Jaipur) in solitude. Worry not!



There are still many forts whose beauty has still not been realised by most tourists. One of those forts is the famed Kumbhalgarh fort. The Mewar fortress is situated on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills in the Rajsamand District near Udaipur.

Although the early history of the fort is obscure, it is believed that it was built by King Samprati in the Mauryan Age during the 6th century. Its current form was built during the rule of Sisodia rajput descendents by Rana Kumbha. Known to be one of the most valiant rulers in Rajasthan Rana Kumbha’s kingdom of Mewar stretched from Ranthambore all the way to Gwalior. He is credited for working tirelessly towards building the state up. Of the eighty four states that he built for the defense of Mewar, Kumbhalgarh is the most elaborately built structure, inferior only to Chittoor.

In June 2013, Kumbhalgarh Fort was recognized as one of the most iconic cultural properties and examples of Rajput military hill architecture when it was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage site list. This is because of its unique structural design that consists of seven massive gates, seven ramparts walls toughened by curved bastions, and huge watchtowers. The walls of the fort are broad enough to have eight horses stand side by side. Inside the complex, there are not less than 360 temples amongst which the Shiva Temple is known to be one of the most iconic structures.

The fort is also known for the palace that resides on the top of the structure. Badal Mahal or Palace among the Clouds is known to be the birth place of Maharana Pratap beautiful rooms with a lovely combination of vibrant greens, turquoise, and whites presents a bright contrast against the earthy colours of the fort. What makes this palace even more enticing is the fact that it gives the perfect panoramic view of the area around Kumbhalgarh.

It is the large complex that Kumbhalgarh fort is that makes exploring the remeanntents of the ancioent structre a pleasurable activity that you might want to spend your day doing.

It would be a smart move to incorporate  taking a peep in the beautiful Kumbhalgarh fort if you decide to visit Udaipur as an extension of a 3 day 4 night golden triangle tour.
