It is a big fort and the Vijay sthumbh and Kumbh Sthumbh are really very good architecture monuments. The Jain temples are really very beautiful and well preserved.

With plethora of jain temples, vijay stambh, palaces, underwater structure, lakes and a whole lot of rich history this is a real gem of mewar, where you can spend 4-5 hours and... More

Every nook and corner has not only witnessed history but is also testimony of great tales of valour and culture. All points are integral part of History - Mira's temple, Kirti Stambh, Vijay Stambh, Rani Padmani's temple, Belgian glass, paintings, Johar kund
