Yes, it is a fact that the second largest wall in the world is present in India. This wall was built in the 15th century on the westerly range of Aravalli hills and is present near Udaipur city. As we all know Rajasthan is famous for its forts and this fort holds a special place in the history of India because it is the birthplace of the famous Rajput king Maharana Pratap. This fort was built by Rana Kumbha and with the fort, he also constructed this 36 km long wall which made the fort impregnable. This site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013.
