The Kumbhalgarh Fort has made its mark in the history for its second-largest wall after the Great wall of China. This large fort is 38Kms long and 3600ft tall and stands as a fortress for the city of Udaipur. It was built by Rana Kumbha in the 15th century. The fort is a UNESCO world heritage site and is situated strategically on the western Aravalli hills.

The magnificent Kumbhalgarh Fort is said to be the birthplace of Maharana Pratap. It consists of seven fortified gateways and has several Jain and Hindu temples in its premises. One can also find the Lakhola tank which was built by Maharana Lakha. The Jain temples inside the fort complex signify that the Rajputs patronized and encouraged Jain culture. It is said that the fort initially faced various problems during its construction and the solution that was sought was a human sacrifice. At the main gate of the fort, which is Hanuman Pol, there is a shrine in the remembrance of the warrior who sacrificed his life.
