Located about 82 km from Udaipur in Rajasthan, the fort of Kumbhalgarh is famous for its beauty and strength. The wall of this fort is about 36 kilometres long, and it is called the world’s second and the longest wall of India after Great Wall of China.

The speciality of this wall is that it has 300 temples and it is not visible from space. This fort was also called ‘Ajayagad,’ it is hard to get the victory for any enemy.

History of Kumbhalgarh Fort

The construction of this tall wall was done by Rana Kumbha to protect the Kumbhalgarh fort from the enemies. Kumbhalgarh is located in Rajshamand district of Rajasthan. This place is situated in the southern part of the state and is also known as Kumbhimaler. With this fort, there has been a deep connection with Indian history.
Here is the childhood between Prithviraj Chauhan and Maharana Say. Panna Dhay had also hidden up the Maharana Uday Singh in this fort. After the defeat of the Battle of Haldighati, Maharana Pratap was in this fort for a long time. This fort is not only the crisis capital of Mewar, but it has been the place of the glory and legends of the historical heritage.

It is said about this fort that it is built according to the laws of Vastu Shastra. In this fort, entrance gate, ramparts, reservoirs, crisis gate to go out, palaces, temples, residential buildings, sacrificial altar, pillars, umbrellas, etc. were built keeping in mind Vaastu.

Kumbhalgarh wildlife sanctuary is spread over an area of 578 square kilometres, gets its name from Kumbhalgarh fort and covers parts of Rajsamand, Udaipur and Pali districts. It is famous for sheep and wild chickens and was declared Wild Wild Sanctuary in 1971. The four-horned antelope is called ‘Chaosinga,’ and Ghattal in local colloquial is preserved here. It is the only deer in the world that has four horns of a male. It is found only in India. This sanctuary is the origin of the river Banas. The Jain temple of Ranakpur (Pali) comes in this. Kumbhalgarh Fort, which was built during the Maharaja Kumbha, is also included in this.

This is the only sanctuary in Rajasthan where wolves can be found. Other wild animals include hyena, jackal, leopard, lazy bears, wild cats, saffron, Nilgai, Chaosinga (four horned deer), chinkara, and rabbit.

Rajasthan has its share of resplendent forts and palaces and museums and what not. With a legion of other places interest and hundreds of thousands of tourists coming to Rajasthan each year, it wouldn’t be wrong to consider it one of the most popular tourist destinations in India.

And while a lot of people are keen on visiting Rajasthan, from what I see, most of them choose to traverse through the state using rail and flights. Given how Rajasthan is brimming with rich heritage and culture and each and every settlement in the state has something unique on offer, most of the tourists miss on the peculiar traits of Rajasthan and never manage to drift apart from popular cities like Jaipur.

One of the best ways to explore Rajasthan, in my opinion, is through road trips. The sheer joy of watching the tarmac fall behind you, the rustic villages calling out to you; bitten by the travel bug, you move and crawl forward, too bothered to care pretty much about everything else.
