A gem of Rajput legacy in the royal state of Rajasthan, Kumbhalgarh is a fortress town that has the second-longest wall in the world, after the Great Wall of China. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kumbhalgarh Fort lies within the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary that was the erstwhile hunting grounds of the rulers of Mewar. Also the birthplace of the legendary Rajput ruler, Maharana Pratap, Kumbhalgarh was one of the most prominent fortresses of Mewar. It was established by Rana Kumbha and his successors, who belonged to the Hindu Sisodia clan of Rajputs.

About 102 km north of Udaipur, Kumbhalgarh is situated on the western ranges of the ragged and high Aravallis, making it virtually inaccessible in the 15th century.
There are as many as 84 forts in the area out of which 32 are said to been built by Rana Kumbha. In ancient times, Kumbhalgarh separated Mewar from Marwar and was used as a refuge by the rulers of Mewar during enemy attacks.
