It is a huge fort with plenty of ruins and temples to see, as it is a very big place, you will need a car to change from one place to the other. The ruins are so well preserved and it is not crowded. The entrance is really cheap and totally worth.

This fort is huge and would have been incredible in its hey day. The perimeter fence is 9km long. It is just crumbling ruins now, but we had a wonderful guide who lived in the village knew all the history. Definitely worthwhile visiting.

Marvelous examples of a fort, monuments and palaces. Magnigicent views and a number of romantic stories about the fort and its history. Sometimes bordering on mythic. A light and sound show in the evening is a pleasant way to enjoy the setting sun.

If we hire a better guide at the gates of entering(a vehicle to go around would be a great +), the entire place can be easily seen. Only thing to beware is the guide will take us to the local store where they sell sarees made out of sitaphal and rajai.. We think they are over selling and they promise... More

Its amazing to be here. Knowing such a great history about the kings and visiting their places gives excitement and eagerness to know more about them. The fort is built in a very vast area one must take vehicle to visit all. Beautiful architecture. Just needs little management to maintain the heritage.

Somehow the amazing scale of it, the varied and stunning views, and the peace and quiet made this stand out in my mind even more than seeing the Taj Mahal (which, of course, you must see, too). We did this in a day drive from Udaipur to Jaipur, which ended up being a bit expensive and exhausting. Almost wish we'd... More

We did Chittorgarh as a day trip from Udaipur (about 140 rupee return on train plus rickshaw) and absolutely loved it. We have been to plenty of other forts across northern India and this was the most impressive by a country mile. The Kumbha Palace is worth the trip by itself, a fantastic place to explore and clamber over with... More
