No visit to Rajasthan is complete without seeing a fort, but to see them all is an adventure worth pursuing. Six forts are protected by UNESCO in Chittorgarh; Kumbhalgarh; Sawai Madhopur; Jhalawar; Jaipur, and Jaisalmer. While each are different, they all are fine examples of Rajput architecture ranging from the 8th to 18th centuries.
