Kumbhalgarh: The Great Wall of India


Kumbhalgarh is one of India's most famous fortresses.  It's located in the Aravalli Mountains in the western part of the country.  Kumbahalgarh was built in the 15th century on the orders of the ruler of Mewar, a kingdom which covered the southern part of what is now the state of Rajasthan.  Its perimeter walls run for 36 km (about 22 mi.), making it one of the largest fortress complexes in the world.  Seen from above in this excellent drone video by Discover India, it's part of a UNESCO World Heritage site known as the Hill Forts of Rajasthan.
