Named after an English girl Cynthia, who discovered it more than a century ago, the Syntheri rock, located in Dandeli, Karnataka, is a colossal monolith of granite, with a height of more than 300 feet. The river Kaneri flows at its base, the water making small caves in the rocks and a small terraced waterfall. Its an ideal place for someone who is interested in geology and bird watching.

Built by Rana Kumbha in the 15th century Kumbhalgarh is the most important fort in Mewar after the Chittorgarh fort. Located at a height of 1100 m above sea level and surrounded by a difficult forest terrain, this fort was used as a refuge by the royals of Mewar in times of danger. The walls of this fort extend to a whopping 36 km, second longest only to the Great Wall of China. The ramparts are so thick at places that 8 horses could ride abreast. The fort is hidden so well within the mountains that one cannot notice its ramparts unless he is just 50 m away from the fort; however from inside the fort one can get a panoramic view of the countryside for miles.

These qualities made Kumbhalgarh was so impregnable that in the bloody swings of Mewar’s fate, it was taken just once; and it took the combined force of Mughals, Amber, Marwar and Gujarat to achieve that feat. If all this is not enough, Kumbhalgarh happens to be the birthplace of Rana Pratap, something which automatically makes it a pilgrimage of a self-respecting Indian worth his salt.

This spectacular Fort is among the Hill forts of Rajasthan in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
