Temples of Kumbalgarh Fort

There are many temples inside this huge Kumbalgarh Fort complex that has a circumference of 36kms running across the hills.

It is believed that there are not less than 360 temples insi
de the Fort in its golden period. In the short time I spent there I have captured few of them in my lens.

Very similar to the one just built here in Canada. However I am just amazed how much work it went to build this beautiful structure. Thanks for sharing, and hope all is well. Anna :)
