Great Wall of India

Everyone knows about the Great Wall of China, but few known about the Great Wall of India (also referred as Kumbhalgarh) which has been living for years in the shadows of its neighbor from the East.

In 1443 a local ruler form Rajasthan by the name of Rana Kumbha, commissioned the building of the wall in order to protect his fort. In the years to come the second longest wall reached an amazing length of 36km with seven fortified gates along the way.

In the 19th century the wall was enlarged to protect a larger area with more than 360 temples located inside its borders. It’s truly astonishing how this national treasure has managed to stay hidden from most of the world for so long.
