Kumbhalgarh Fort is a Mewar fortress on the westerly range of Aravali Hills, in the Rajsamand district near Udaipur of Rajasthan state in western India. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site included in Hill Forts of Rajasthan. Built during the course of the 15th century by Rana Kumbha, Kumbhalgarh is also the birthplace of Maharana Pratap, the great king, and warrior of Mewar. Occupied until the late 19th century, the fort is now open to the public and is spectacularly lit for a few minutes each evening.
Set amongst rolling hills and shimmering lakes, beautiful views, and large open spaces, Udaipur is considered by many as the most beautiful and romantic city in Rajasthan. It contrasts with the creations of the Moghuls and the fortifications of the other cities of Rajasthan, due to its love of the whimsical and crafted elegance. It is also surprisingly quiet and traffic-free which gives it the atmosphere of a small town where it is easy to stroll around its winding alleyways, bustling bazaars, and tree-lined streets.
Most majestic and romantic of all the Indian states is Rajasthan with its royal palaces, forts, and legendary cities such as Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur whose majesty and history conjure up images of the opulence synonymous with the region. It combines ancient desert tribes, warring Rajputs and royal Maharajas and features forgotten.
