Can I claim if this is one of the best light & sound shows in India? You will explore about that in this blogpost. How is this light & sound show of Kumbhalgarh Fort in comparison to other shows which happen in Rajasthan like - Light & Sound show at Chittorgarh or City Palace of Udaipur etc? You may also find about that when you go through the blogpost.

While we will be talking about Kumbhalgarh in greater details, this post is dedicated to the Kumbhalgarh fort, a massive invincible structure that has withstood several sieges, conspiracies, and most importantly, the test of time. As you move closer to the fort, its bulbous watch towers confirm the stories that you have heard so far - that it was impossible to scale these walls and get past these gates, making the kingdom within practically impenetrable.

Amongst all the light & sound shows I have seen in India, my favourite so far is the one which happens in Old Fort of Delhi. It has wonderful narration along with very compelling lighting work. The lighting is not only about synchronised light effects across different parts of the fort but these are very graphical. The way music compliments the narration and colourful graphic is simply amazing. So if you visit Delhi, don't miss light & sound show at Old fort. To know more, please click on the link above.

We visited Kumbhalgarh Fort during COVID times so we couldn't see light & sound show, but these evening lighting compensated well. Most of the main structures inside Kumbhalgarh fort were very well lit along with the wall from outside. The whole fort looks stunning in this light. During usual days as well, this lighting remains on after finishing light & sound show. That happens for a very short span of time.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite.
