The Great Wall of India
Kumbhalgarh is a fortress in north-west India near the city of Udaipur. It was built in the 15th Century A.D. by the local king Rana Kumbha.
This lesser known wall, is the second longest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China. Spreading over 36 kilometers, a modest part of it has been restored by the Archaeological Survey of India.
The fortress itself is at a height of about 1,900 meters. The surrounding wall encloses not only the fortress but, 360 temples with over 300 being solely Jain temples that are much older than the wall and the fortress.
