History of Khumbhalgarh

Kumbhalgarh is known for its historical fort. Kumbhalgarh fort is the second most important fort in Rajasthan after Chittorgarh. This fort was built in 15th century AD by Rana Kumbha between 1445 and 1458 AD. The massive fort, encompassed by a 36 km long wall, has seven majestic gates and seven ramparts, one within the other which are ideal for nature trail. The Last gate-the 'Nimboo Pol' has fascinating chambers. According to history, the infant Udai Singh who later founded Udaipur, was smuggled from Bundi and was hidden in these chambers to save himself from his murderous intentions of his uncles. The fort has witnessed many heroic deeds of great warriors. This formidable fort fell only once to the army of Akbar and that too because the water supply was contaminated by the enemy forces.
