Visit to the Fort

Kumbhalgarh, an imposing fort built in 1458 AD set amid massive ramparts and surrounded by hundreds of temples, the creation of one of Mewar’s legendary heroes Rana Kumbha and the birthplace of the legendary warrior of Mewar Maharana Pratap. This fort was the second-most important fort for the Maharana’s of Mewar, the famous erstwhile rulers. Today, the wall encompassing the fort is known to be the second -longest wall after The Great Wall of China. The fort has seven grand gates and ramparts, one within the other. Rounded bastions and soaring towers add to its grandeur. The last gate or the Nimboo Pol has fascinating chambers within. There is an array of old palaces within the fort and Badal Mahal, the highest of all the palaces offering glorious views of the countryside. Built by Rana Kumbha in the 15th century, it has beautiful apartments painted with pastel-coloured murals.

Kumbhalgarh, along with five other forts in Rajasthan was recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Site in June 2013. Quite astonishingly, there are around 360 ancient temples, as well as palace ruins, step wells, and cannon bunkers inside it.

Entry to the fort is open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily. There’s an interesting sound and light show at 6.45 p.m. everyday at the fort which is a highlight of Kumbhalgarh experience.
