The Great Wall of India

Why have so few heard of the second largest wall in the world?

MMDE: Not the Great Wall of India

Current: The Great Wall of India

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.

Kumbhalgarh Fort

The wall has a rich history. A fort was at the site as early as the 6th century, since the location is of great strategic importance located at the centre of 13 mountains in the west of India. The fort was constructed by Alauddin Khiljii in the 14th century, and only took a remarkable 100 years to build - the Great Wall of China took 1800 years. It's 22 miles long and wide enough for up to 8 hordes to ride across it side by side. 

The story of the human sacrifice is a strange one. Apparently there were a few false starts when construction began, and the foundations would not hold. A holy man then told the rulers a human sacrifice had to be made for it to succeed, which was done and the wall did indeed hold strong from then on. It is unclear whether the sacrifice was the man who suggested it himself or not...

Mass Amnesia

These "suddenly from nowhere" Mandela Effects are more common than people realize. They are typified by something which is understood to be much more widely known that it apparently is, and some say has therefore appeared in the current timeline. Another example is the Razzle Dazzle ships.
