Kumbhalgarh fort was built by Rana Kumbha of Mewar in the 15th century and is said to resemble the Great Wall of China due to its 36 km long perimeter of walls. The fort separated Mewar from Marwar and was said to be impenetrable thereby allowing a safe refuge for Mewar rulers who came under threat. The fort fell due to a shortage of water and a joint invasion by the Mughals, Raja Man Singh of Amber, Raja Udai Singh of Marwar and the Mirzas of Gujarat.

The fort complex encloses upon fertile lands of the kingdom as well as 360 temples, 300 of which are Jain. The thick walls of the fort (up to fifteen feet wide) have seven gateways. Today the fort is a museum and some parts of the complex are off limits due to the fear of defense mechanisms and traps that may not have been disabled.

Kumbhalgarh is accessible by road and is 82 km northwest of Udaipur.
