Rana Kumbha Palace is a historical monument where the Rajput King Maharana Kumbha spent his royal life. This magnificent palace was built in the 15th century and is considered to be one of the finest structures in India. It is an epitome of the Rajputana architecture and is very popular among tourists.
The palace is believed to have underground cellars where Rani Padmini along with other women of the province performed 'Jauhar' (honorary self-immolation to save oneself from being dishonoured at the hands of the enemies). The palace has an ancient temple nearby which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Every day, a light and sound show is organised for tourists in the palace complex.
