The fort was built with great architecture which allows the people in the fort to view the entire district, and during wars, the Seven Gates used to be helpful. The wall of Kumbhalgarh Fort is also considered as the second 'Great Wall of China'. There are more than 360 temples within the fort out of which the most famous temple is the Shiva temple (famous for shivalinga).
