“Koombhomer was impregnable to a native army”, wrote Col James Todd.
Rana Kumbha, the builder extraordinaire, is credited with building thirty-two of the eighty–four fortresses that formed bull work of defense of the Kingdom of Mewar, constantly on its guard against the Mughal Armies.
Rana Kumbha ruled the Kingdom of Mewar for thirty-five long and eventful years (reign 1433 – 1468 AD). The towering gate of Kumbhalgarh has been a mute witness to a valorous past drive through these huge gates today and you enter a world made only for hardened warriors and chiefs. The steep incline and the huge steps of stone, the fort was home to men who lived by the sword…and died on the battlefield, upholding the honor and pride of Mewar.
