The Aodhi ($$)
The Aodhi, or `watchtower' is a resort in a peaceful location close to the entrance of the magnificent Kumbhalgarh Fort.
Things to see and do in Kumbhalgarh
In a state so full of magnificent forts, Kumbhalgarh is one of the most memorable ones. Its massive rampart walls rise from the rocky base. The fort has perimeter walls that extend 33 km in length, claimed to be the longest in the world after "The Great Wall of China". The wall is about 4 metres wide throughout - large enough for the passage of a truck!
The entrance gate of the fort is similar in its scale. Unfortunately, many palaces now lie neglected. Still some buildings are worth visiting; Badal Mahal or the Cloud Palace, at the highest point in the palace painted in delicate fading pastel colours and the Maharajah's palace with its quaint, blue coloured Durbar Hall. The views from almost any point in the Kumbhalgarh fort are panoramic.
The Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary
Kumbhalgarh Fort borders a game sanctuary which boasts of panthers, sloth bears, sambhars, wild boar and the rare grey jungle fowls.
Take a horse safari in the countryside. The rugged terrain is ideal for horses and it is possibly the best way to explore this exciting area.
