is there a cooler name in the world for a fort than this one?
the location is awesome, the fort is or was impenetrable, never got taken, only once and it took the armies of three kingdoms combined and even then they only held to it for two days, before they got all defeated by the mighty fort that is KUMBALGARH....... the wall around it is the second longest in the world, it has its own medieval little village, it's nearly deserted these days, it's isolated so not many people venture there, and it has this strange indian woman that took us into a dark tiny random room with one candle burning and the statues of Kali, Vishnu and Ganesha and after mumbling some words in hindi she put a greasy dot on our foreheads made of ghee that fell from that one candle...... we're walking around with a grease spot in the head and loving it, feeling very blessed indeed.......
there's no other fort in the world that matches KUMBALGARH........ it has a name that makes you want to sing loud, almost scream......... KUUUMBAAALGAAAARRRRRHHH!!!!!!
