I have been here before and wouldn't mind going again and again. Chittor fort quite literally takes you back in time. There is a story attached to each part of the fort. Take a tour guide along for an even better experience. Preferably visit in the early evening so you can finish the visit off with the Sound and Light... More

Visited this site a couple of years back, on my tour to Rajasthan. Loved the scenic view! The fort is pretty hyped locally and is a must visit! The evening time of my visit made it more worthwhile!

The extent and diversity of sculpture and fortifications delight the eye. The local visitors are friendly and helpful if awed by our foreign appearance.

Much hyped as the largest forest in India, the fort does look imposing from the ground as one approaches it. This is a living fort in the sense it has a population within its boundary walls. However, the historic part of the fort is under the Archaelogical Survey of India (ASI). The ASI is busy re-building the ruins and making... More

Fort is worth a visit. The light & sound show is very good too. The tower is definitely worth it. Best to visit until 4:30-5 P.M. when natural light is in abundance. The way up the tower is narrow. The carvings inside are exquisite. Makes for good pictures. :-) Monkeys are frolicking over the tower. So be careful.

Unlike Jaipur and Jodhpur which collaborated with aggressors, the kingdom of Mewar fought valiantly. That's why there aren't grand palaces full of art work here - only ruins. If you have a good guide, you'll get a feel for the history of this part of Rajasthan. The fort has the ruined palaces, Meerabai's temple and palace, the Vijay Stambh, Jain... More

For a centuries old fort, the remnants are well maintained. All the monuments/landmarks are within the fort , But It takes a lot of time to cover all places by foot. So better to take an auto rickshaw. from railway station to fort and back would be around 350/- ASI charges an entrance fee of 5/- for the fort. A... More

The 13 km long fort has beautifull architecture. It was Rani Padmini's home once.A lot stories are associated with this fort like the one with Rani Padminis summer fort and how a king was allowed to see her face through strategically placed mirrors.There also a sad history of jauhar associated with this fort where the wives and daughters of the...
