Kumbhalgarh – nearly a record

india-2014-527

What’s this?

Perched high in the Aravelli Hills in Rajasthan, wind whistles as natural air-conditioning through beautifully hand-carved vents such as this in Kumbhalgargh Fort, built by Rana (King) Khumba in the 15th century.

My friend and I chewed cardamon pods to try to combat the queasiness we were both feeling in the long and very windy car trip we took to get there.  

Where’s this?

Kumbhalgarh Fort (a UNESCO World Heritage site), Kumbhalgarh, Rajasthan.

The wall of Kumbhalagrh Fort is 38 kms long, and is the second longest wall in the world, after the Great Wall of China.
