Welcome to Kumbhalgarh

Kumbhalgarh Fort is the second most important fort in Rajasthan after Chittaurgarh. It is located at a distance of 64 kms from Udaipur in Kelwada tehsil of district Rajsamand of Rajasthan State. Built in 1458 by Maharana Kumbha, a Mewar king, the fort derived its name from the same factor. Later, Maharana Fateh Singh renovated the fort in the 19th century. Encircled by thirteen elevated mountain peaks, Kumbhalgarh fort stands on the site of an ancient citadel which is ascribed to Samprati, a Jaina prince of the second century BC. History says that he built around 300 temples at this place. Later Rana Kumbha, added to this. At present, few of these are left, fewer with idols inside. The main tourist attractions in Kumbhalgarh is the Kumbhalgarh Fort. Even today, it is one of the most inaccessible forts of Rajasthan and reached with great difficulty. This fort stands on a rocky hill commanding an excellent view of the wild and rugged scenery of the Aravalis and the sandy desert of Marwar. It is defended by a series of walls with battlements and bastions. The other attraction is the “Badal Mahal” or the Cloud Palace. This palace which is situated at the top of the hill offers a scenic view of the surrounding countryside. It was renovated in the late 19th century.
