    The Story of Rana Kumbha:
    “The Architect of Mewar” fifty named.
    For not alone this masterpiece displays
    His preternatural taste, but many temples too
    He did erect, while on the wide-spread plains
    Great forts he built, where’er his power grew
    For fifty years great Kumbha reigned,
    Renowned for wisdom, justice and for power,
    Loved by the clans, who thrived beneath his rule,
    But feared by those, who from his strength must cower.

    - by Mr. S.O. Heinemann
