Famous destination in Kumbhalgarh Fort

  • The Kumbhalgarh Fort located in the wilderness and banished lands, is a Mewar fortress in the Rajsamand district of Rajasthan. It was built by Maharaja Rana Kumbha who belonged to the descending dynasty of the Sisodias. The fort is of great historical importance and is the birthplace of the valiant king, Maharana Pratap. The fort was very wisely built on the top of the hill making it inaccessible and invincible for enemies. Thirteen Peaks of the Aravallis protect this fortress making it impossible for any force to attack. Thus, this fort was once used as a refuge for the rulers. The fort was highly equipped to protect the rulers if there was a siege or war. Due to the shortage of water, the fort was once sieged with the combined efforts of Akbar, Raja Man Singh of Amber, Raja Udai Singh of Marwar and the Sultan of Gujarat.
