  about Kumbhalgarh

Surrounded among the cluster of thirteen mountain peaks of the Aravalli ranges, the formidable medieval citadel - Kumbhalgarh is the epitome of the past glory of Indian royalty.

Rounded bastions and soaring watch towers strengthen the walls of the fort marking it an impregnable structure. Fascinating chambers are built on the western side of the last gate - the 'Nimboo Pol'. According to history, the infant Udai Singh was smuggled from Bundi and hidden in these chambers by his faithful maid Panna Dai to save him from the murderous intentions of his Uncles who desired the throne.
