Kumbhalgarh Fort Rajasthan, India - A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Built on the highest point of Kumbhalgarh Fort - literally an uphill steep climb - and is definitely worth your time - is Badal Mahal or Palace in the Clouds. Built by the Rana of Mewar, Rana Fateh Singh in typical Rajput style - the palace is divided in two distinct parts namely the Zenana Mahal (for royal women) and Mardana Mahal (for royal men). The palace walls are ornate with beautiful paintings and delicately carved friezes - the Zenana mahal has exquisite lattice work or stone jalis that would enable the queens to watch important events.
