Hill Forts of Rajasthan

Brief description

The serial site, situated in the state of Rajastahan, includes six majestic forts in Chittorgarh; Kumbhalgarh; Sawai Madhopur (Ranthambore Fort); Jhalawar (Gagron Fort); Jaipur (Amer, or Amber Fort), and Jaisalmer. The ecclectic architecture of the forts, some up to 20 kilometres in circumference, bears testimony to the power of the Rajput princely states that flourished in the region from the 8th to the 18th centuries.
