The largest fort in Asia, covering 700 acres of a seven mile long hill, the Fort looms endlessly above the town. It has a long and eventful history, punctuated by tragic and violent events. The numerous - and impressive - monuments within the fort testify to this. It's story would make a fantastic epic movie. The present day fort is... More

Chittorgarh has a history of untold bravery and sacrifice. You will see and hear this at the attractions and landmarks within the fort. Unlike other cities in Rajsthan such as Jaipur and Udaipur, Chittogarh has no royal family that continued to live here. So there has been no push for commercialism ion. Hence from a tourism perspective, this place and... More

The fort is said to be the biggest for in Asia. It has numerous temples with intricate carvings however the carvings are destroyed when it was attacked. It is better if you have a car to roam around inside the fort because it is huge and it is just not possible to travel the whole distance by foot. You must... More

We decided to visit Chittor over doing a city tour of Udaipur (which we could not, eventually) but we did not regret it one bit. Even in scorching heat of May, Chittor was mesmerizing. The place was teeming with visitors and its amazing that even with an entrance fee of just Rs. 5 (which is required only for the Vijay... More

Part of the Unesco World Heritage monuments. This is a place which has a lot of history. From bravery to lechery this place has seen it all. Multiple great battles have been fought which has left this place in shambles. Shambles they may be, but still stand proudly to a glorious past. The Light and Sound show was star studded... More

Just love history and had been hearing Chittor’s tales from my childhoor (thanks to Amar Chitra Katha). Had sadly missed Chittor in my visit 20years back and was keen to make it up this time. We drove from Udaipur a journey which takes from 2 to 2.5 hours. Took a lunch place at Gangaur – a home restaurant. Had nice... More

A majestic fort on the hill of a very dusty city, it is a must visit for anyone going to Udaipur. It is such a huge fort that having a vehicle is a must. The quality of guides available is very poor (In contrast to say city palace, Udaipur) so reading up before going there is recommended. Young children will... More

Its mid-way between jaipur and Udaipur, and is not to missed. Without walking through this enormous fort and learning about its history as well as witnessing its ruins, the relevance of Udaipur is less meaningful. A good guide can show you around the fort, the ruins, including the Meera Bai temple and the Rani Padmini palace, with the account of... More

One of India's larger and older forts. Has been witness to prolonged sieges, bloody battles, dark intrigues and eternal love both to God and man. My favorite fort. Love visiting it.

We took our time to visit the fort. Please don't forget to take a transport inside the fort as the areas to be visited are stretched. There are 5-7 spots to be visited Padmini's Palace, Vijay Stumbh, Kirti Stumbh, King's Palace, Fateh Prakash Museum, Mira Bai's Mandir and a few other temples.The story of beautiful princess Rani Padmini will amaze...
