Kumbhalgarh Tourism & Travel Guide

Kumbhalgarh, located about 105 km from Udaipur, is most famous for its brilliant Kumbhalgarh Fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you are fond of monuments, forts and palaces, this is the place for you. Situated on a hill, the walls of the fort spread across a grand 36 km making it one of the longest walls in the world. Do visit the fort for its magnificence and grandeur. Another great touristy spot is the wildlife sanctuary of Kumbhalgarh which is a must visit in the midst of a historical tour. Most of the palaces here have been converted into hotels and are a great way to experience the heritage and culture of an era gone by. Also visit Haldighati, a popular destination famous for the historical battle fought here. It offers you a peek into the battle and for a few hours, you are lost in time. Located an hour away is the popular and sacred Nathdwara Shrinathji Temple which is a must visit, if not for spiritual pursuits, then to admire the stunning Lake Rajsamand.

Rajasthan’s opulent capital is a magical land brimming with desert camps and lakeside palaces. Sitting on the edge of the Thar desert and surrounded by the Aravali hills, the Pink City boasts of hilltop forts, bustling bazaars and the best pyaaz kachoris you’ll ever taste. Among the places to visit in Jaipur city, the grandiose pink sandstone Palace of Winds, or Hawa Mahal, towering over the hustling streetscapes and the majestic City Palace are the ones attracting the most tourists. The 18th century old astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a UNESCO world heritage site and a major tourist attraction. Perched proudly on the top of a hill is Amber Fort, dating back to the 16th century. The red sandstone structure houses palaces, temples, gardens and a lake inside its premises. One of the most favoured things to do in Jaipur is to walk through the lively Bapu Bazaar, and come out with bags stocked with bandhani-printed sarees, lac bangles, meenakari trinkets and blue pottery. And while you’re at it, shop for some string puppets or kathputlis that make for some excellent souvenirs. Galtaji temple, also called the Monkey Temple, is another must visit in Jaipur city. If your eyes just can't get enough, visit Amber Fort, which has its own 600-year-old story to narrate, through its spectacular light and sound shows, cultural performances and folk music. Rajasthani tailored clothes, jewellery and handicrafts are a huge hit as souvenirs, for their exquisite mirror work, embroidery, leather and splashes of colour making up for most of Jaipur’s tourism. Some famous places this illustrious workmanship can be bought from are Rajasthali, Anokhi, Johari bazaar and Sireh Deori Bazaar, but remember to bargain. Central Museum and Albert Hall museum are great places to learn about Rajasthan's rich history and culture and also to buy handicrafts. The Jaipur Literature Festival, the world's largest free literature festival, is dear to almost every bibliophile around the globe. Here, enjoy literature and music, amidst the likes of William Dalrymple, Stephen Fry and many other renowned writers and personalities. The 5-day festival is hosted in Diggi Palace, which gives people around the world an insight into Rajasthan's captivating cultural heritage. For those interested in pampering their palates with the flavourful Rajasthani cuisine against the backdrop of a picturesque village should visit Chokhni Dani. For a regal experience, a stay at the Suvarna Mahal is a must visit.
