The Great Wall of India

Why have so few heard of this?

The Kumbhalgarh fortress has a wall which is 36 km long, it's the second longest in the world and it contains 360 temples, yet the number of people aware of this "Great Wall of India" is astonishingly small.

Some people claim that, as in similar cases when such a prominent historical feature seems to be unknown, there is more going on than just a case of bad history being taught, and could even be a form of the Mandela Effect.

Built for defensive purposes only, the fort has never been conquered. It has seven fortified gates and is fifteen feet thick for most of it's length.

It has a grisly origin. The legend goes a human sacrifice was required, apparently a volunteer - was required according to a spiritual adviser at the time, and the fort and subsequent wall was built on his body.
