Spread over 700 acres within a 13km boundary, once can but agree with the saying that chittorgarh fort is the real fort and all others are just fortresses. With plethora of jain temples, vijay stambh, palaces, underwater structure, lakes and a whole lot of rich history this is a real gem of mewar, where you can spend 4-5 hours and... More

Every nook and corner has not only witnessed history but is also testimony of great tales of valour and culture. All points are integral part of History - Mira's temple, Kirti Stambh, Vijay Stambh, Rani Padmani's temple, Belgian glass, paintings, Johar kund

The first fort which is so huge and you have to travel by your own car to visit the same. What architecture and what beauty still exsists in this fort. The johar kund and padmini palace is a sight to watch if one likes history then. Kalika temple is a must watch.

The fort takes your breath away. The majestic serenity with history peeping out from every nook and corner transports you to another world. However, the fort is not very well kept and is in dire need of maintenance.

A mother sacrificed her own child so that the future heir to the throne could escape a devious plan and live. Wives sacrificed themselves and... More
