Cradled in the cluster of thirteen mountain peaks of the Aravalli ranges, the formidable medieval citadel-Kumbhalgarh stands a wary sentinel to the past glory. Rising from a prominent ridge,1914 meters high from the seaq level, the fort was built in 15th century A.D. by Maharana Kumbha(1419-63 A.D.)and the principal fortification after Chittorgarh, lying 90 km north-west of Udaipur.
Kumbhalgarh is the second most important bastion in the Mewar region, after Chittorgarh. Where it now stands, was once the site of an ancient citadel dating back to the 2nd century AD. That citadel belonged to a Jain descendant of India's Mauryan emperors. Rana Kumbha founded the fort of Kumbhalgarh in the 15th century. Kumbhalgarh in Rajasthan, India is one of the few forts in India that remain unconquered till date. One of the reasons behind this is the inaccessibility and hostile topography of the fort. Maharana Fateh Singh got the fort renovated in the 19th century.
