"A little marvel by the foot of Aravali"

Kumbhalgarh Tourism

Kumbhalgarh is a fortress located in the Aravalli Range of Rajasmand district in Rajasthan. A Merwar Fortress, Kumbhalgarh is one of the World Heritage Sites and is the second-largest fort in India after Chittorgarh Fort. Covering around 12 square kms, the walls of the fort stretch over an area of about 36 kms and is one of the longest walls in the world, second only to China’s Great Wall!

Built during the reign of Rana Kumbha in the 15th century, Chittorgarh is also one of the largest fort complexes in the world. Located 82km from Udaipur, it makes for a great one day trip.

If you are interested in some adventure, don't miss out on the foot tracking and horse safari organised in the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary. The Safari starts from the Kumbhalgarh Fort and reaches Ghanerao while cutting across the sanctuary. The best part of this safari is the chance to spot Antelopes, Chinkaras and Neelgais.

History of Kumbhalgarh

The history of Kumbhalgarh dates back to the 15th century. The foundation of the town is believed to have been laid by Rana Kumbha- the king of Mewar. The fort housed and gave refuge to Mewar rulers in their times of strife. The fort remained impregnable to various invasions and forces and only collapsed once due to a shortage of drinking water within the premises. Kumbhalgarh is also the birthplace of Maharana Pratap. Other than the fort, the descendants of Mauryan empire built quite a few beautiful temples which add to the popularity of the city. Maharana Fateh Singh renovated the fort in the 19th century, and since then it has been a popular tourist destination in the world.

What is the best time to visit Kumbhalgarh?

Kumbhalgarh experiences a hot and dry climate during summers hence travelling is quite tiresome during this time. Thus, winter (October to February) is an ideal time to visit, as the weather is comfortable for sightseeing and the chances of spotting wild animals in the wildlife sanctuary are also very high. Since the luscious green vegetation of Kumbhalgarh is a natural wonder in the desert state of Rajasthan, one can even visit the region during the rainy season as the monsoon showers splash its magical charm over the dense vegetation, making the place gleam with greenery.
