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.


The Kumbhalgarh fort is built 3600 feet above the sea level, in the lap of thirteen elevated Aravalli mountain peaks. 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. The width varies from 49 feet to 15 feet at most places. The fort offers a bird’s eye view of the surrounding towns and dunes of the Thar. It has seven fortifies gateways that stand in the form of sentinels. The largest gate is known as Ram Pol or Ram Gate and is a unique piece of attraction. The fort also houses around 360 temples, 300 of which are the ancient Jain temples.
