There's no doubt Kumbalgharh fort is a hugely impressive construction. 36km of walls covering14km2. Of course you have to climb up to the top of the fort, but with largely empty rooms, apart from some elephant frescoes, it's not a hugely rewarding experience. The view is commanding and the highest structure, the Badal Mahal means Cloud Palace. Even when it's... More

Interestingly, the name comes from the root word ‘Kumbh’ in Sanskrit, which means ‘clay pot’; because of its architectural style (see featured image from last blog how it looks from a distance, that clay-pot structure which is supporting these walls). Just to refresh your memory, this fort never fell to any of the attackers & hosts the longest wall in... More

This fort is nearby day activity from Udaipur and Jodhpur. From udaipur it is nearly 80 Kms and 3.5 hrs drive. It is important historical place in mewar region. Its a very huge fort. Since it is situated on the hills, it offers a very good view of the nearby area but requires tiresome climbing and stairs. Jungle safari is... More

Take the help of an authorised guide to understand the history properly. Do not miss the sound and light show where they explain the history using lights music etc. Ideal time to visit is 4 pm to 7 pm so you can peacefully see the fort in 2 hrs and attend the sound and light show.

We were driving down to Kumbhalgarh from Jodhpur, via Ranakpur. Google maps goofed-up & we reached the Kumbhalgarh fort much later than expected in our tight itinerary :( We were really keen to see this fort with a guide, but alas couldn't due to paucity of time. We purchased the fort-entrance tickets as well as the light & sound show... More

Kumbhalgarh Fort, located 80 kms away from Udaipur, is one of the important tourist places in Udaipur. It takes around 2-3 hours to reach. Honestly speaking, after visiting Mehrangarh Fort, Amer Fort, I found it quiet disappointing from maintenance and tourist information point of view. I looked for a government guide in situ but unable to find one. I do... More

An amazing fort for its sheer size & area.the 36 km wall is mind boggling. The climb up to the palace, steep & with its numerous gates just hinted to an era & lifestyle that must have been. Beautiful to just stroll around , and take a walk towards the temples in the distance. In ruins , but some of... More
