Visit Dungapur, India

Dungapur, otherwise known as the City of Hills, was founded in the 13th century, nestled into the southern part of the Aravalli hills. The original palace, the Juna Mahal, was built as a rural retreat by the ruling Rajputs, and constructed with crenulated walls, turrets and narrow passageways as a means of defence.
