Hint: The Kumbhalgarh fort is located in a district near Udaipur of Rajasthan. It is also known as Kumbhal fort. It is also the second-largest fort in India after Chittor Fort.

Complete answer: Kumbhalgarh is also known as "Kumbha fort". It is a Mewar fortress in Rajasthan. It lies on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills. It is located in the Rajsamand district near Udaipur of Rajasthan in western India. It is also a World Heritage Site which is included in the Hill Forts of Rajasthan. It was built during the 15th century by a very eminent king called Rana Kumbha and hence the name. Although this fort was occupied until the late 19th century but is now open to the common people or public. Not only that but it is spectacularly lit for a few minutes every evening. Kumbhalgarh is located around 82 km northwest of Udaipur. It is considered as the most important fort in Mewar after the Chittorgarh Fort. At the 37th session of the World Heritage Committee that was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Kumbhalgarh Fort, was declared as the world heritage site. Along with it, there were five other forts of Rajasthan that were also declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Kumbhal fort is among the largest forts in the world.

Therefore option “C” is the correct answer.

Note: The capital of Rajasthan is Jaipur. It is very well known that Jaipur is called as “the pink city of India”. Rajasthan is India’s largest state with respect to the area covered.
