Fort in Kumbhalgarh, was built by Maharana
Kumbha in the 15th century. This is the second most important fort in
Rajasthan after the Chittaurgarh Fort. Kumbhalgarh Fort is perched on the
Aravallis and this otherwise inaccessible fort can only be reached by jeep
from Kelwara after crossing the seven great gates.
Apart from the Badal Mahal or the 'Cloud Palace', which gives a scenic view of the city, there are temples of great antiquity and interest.
Six kilometers from the fort is the Kumbhalgarh Sanctuary. The sanctuary is famous for its fauna such as the Wolf, Leopard, Jackal and a variety of birds. The sanctuary protects some of the rare species struggling for survival. This palce is equally famous for its archaeological value. The fort is 84 kms and the sanctuary is 90 kms from the city.
