    Chittorgarh Fort Rajasthan India.
    Chittorgarh Fort is a monumental place for wonderful artifacts and generations of puzzles. I booked tickets with my friends and It seems that foreign tickets are more expensive than national ones. However, Chittorgarh Fort is a nice place to visit.

    The biggest fort
    It’s the biggest fort in India, built on a flat mountain top. So many Rajputana history connected with it. It was so difficult to conquer n so easy to protect. But as always someone from inside gives away the secrets, and it was too conquered couple of times. Plenty history with this fort too, it’s spread over a huge area. Good that the car by vehicle / taxi are allowed all around. Vishnu temple, Meera temple n the jain temple were at first stop. Vijay stambh, jauhar place , shiv temple n the gomukh kund followed. Rani Padmini palace was the next one, n the last one were Kirti stambh n jein temple. We were there for few hours n that’s why so much running around, to actually all in the fort area, one will need at least 2-3 days. Guide is a must if visiting first time but they r the one rushing from one place to other.

    Seeped in History of Mewar
    The Chittorgarh fort is an amazing place. Located atop a hill, it has several different palaces and temples which are simply magnificent…. The place where Rani Padmini committed Jauhar is also located within this fort. Legend has it that Meerabai also lived in this fort. A temple dedicated to Lord Krishna was constructed where she could pray The famous Vijay Stambh and Kirti Stambh are also located here. Also it is widespread, yet it is accessible by vehicles. It is recommended to carry water and wear comfortable shoes as a lot of walking is inevitable Altogether, a great historical experience

    A Historical Marvel
    Excellent tour! We gained indepth historical insights thanks to our fantastic guide Trilok Salvi who provided thorough details in English. The fort itself is majestic and hosts some of the most majestic temples and remnants of palaces. Highly recommended.

    A must do on a Udaipur visit
    Amazing and awe inspiring structure with so much history. A must do on a Udaipur visit as its a days trip from there. The road is good and the drive takes about 2 hours. Its good to engage an official guide from near the ticketing office. Some haggling over the price is the norm. You can drive through most of the fort stopping for various historical structures. A late lunch outside the exit gate at the family run Gangaur restaurant was a treat. The thali was quite phenomenal.

    Excellent fort
    Superb fort to visit. Use your own car to drive through and hire a guide. Or else you can park below the fort and use a hired autorickshaw. A full perimeter round is recommended. The architecture is fabulous, although many structures are in ruins.

    The Colossal Fort
    Chittaurgarh Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dominates the city's skyline. Built in the 7th century, it witnessed several battles and reflects Rajputana grandeur. The Vijay Stambh (Victory Tower) and Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame) are iconic structures within the fort. Chittaurgarh also boasts temples like Kalika Mata and Meera Bai, showcasing a blend of Hindu architecture. The city resonates with tales of valor and is a testament to India's rich cultural heritage.

    Relive the history
    Very good fort. It is a very big fort lying in a big area. I would suggest to hire a guide to relive the history associated with this fort. The night lighting outside is visible from far away and provides a great view of the fort.

    A guide who opened our eyes
    This is a shout out to Parvati Sukhwal, whom we had the pleasure of meeting during a visit to Chittorgarh Fort. This was a last minute decision, so didn't know who we would get as a guide. Parvati was amazing! She quickly sized up our interest in the culture, history and sociology of the region and mesmerized us with an evolutionary history from the Mauryan kings of the 6th century to the Rajput kings who came later. Artefacts and monuments came to life as she explained the contexts in which they came about; why the fort fell as many times as it did; and why it proved difficult for Maharana Pratap to take it back. Parvati also runs a Boutique Homestay with her husband called Padmini Haveli, which is located within the fort. She, and our visit to the fort, was a highlight of our 8-day trip to Rajasthan. Considering that the 3 members of our group were all above 60, she had to design a route that suited our physical constraints - a feat she managed with aplomb. And, oh yes, she can guide in English, French, Hindi, Marwari, and Telugu, among the languages I discovered.

It is a nice fort. It will take 4-6 hrs to visit each part. The entrance of the fort gives you a royal feeling. Just imagine, you entering the Fort on horseback or on a chariot. Inside the Fort, there are some touristy spots as well as someplace where you just seat & can spend the time & rewind the history. The water reservoir named Gomukh is different. Think about the technology to create it. Some part of the fort is ruin. Also before booking the auto ( as it is a very large fort so only walking is not possible) fixed the rate whether it is includes guide charge or not.

I visited Chittorgarh yesterday with my family. I am writing this review here for travellers who are planning to visit this place in future.

Mode of transportation: By road
Distance from Delhi via Jaipur( NH 8) 594 kms

Chittorgarh is known for its greatest ever majestic Fort which has faced several wars and conflicts between different empires to acquire it.

It is world's oldest and greatest Fort which still stand tall and beautiful.

Recent Indian film 'Padmavat' was based on this fort which showcases how Allaudin-khilji wanted to get the Queen 'rani Padmavati' on any cost.

The fort has a sprawling 13 kms boundary wall with 8 gates, one another for its entry.

You can drive your car all the way up to the fort and inside it also one can drive to different spots to visit.

Most of the palaces and Hindu temples are ruined and we're destroyed first by Khilji and later by Bahadur Shah Jafar. Still you can see how beautiful the architecture is and how the remains still depict their history.

Most of the temple idols are destroyed and you will notice their faces broken. This looks painful.

The fort has 44 water ponds within which were built by the King to sustain the water supply.

The fort ambience is very soothing and you can feel you actually are into that historical time.

There is also a story of the great warrior 'Bhim' , who built this fort in one day as a challenge owning the majestic superpowers, but this story is debatic from mythological perspective as it has no actual evidence but only the local residents of the city. However the Fort was built by The Mauryan dynasty rulers which was later ruled by The Rajputs.

You will also find the Meera Temple in the premises which depicts the story of Meera and her devotion towards Lord Krishna. Ever since her husband died, her royal family did not wanted her to live like a married woman and singing and dancing for Lord Krishna as she was a widow. However Meera ruled them out saying she did not considered him as a husband but only Lord Krishna itself.

You can still find the same temple where people found him going inside for the last time but never came out as she was lost inside Lord Krishna itself.

The fort has such interesting stories to tell and seeing the place you can instantly connect to all of them. It's really amazing!

Chittorgarh has not much to offer but nearby places are Udaipur which is 110 kms / 2 hours drive only.

The roads are wide and excellent. Several roadside restaurants , hotels, dhabas to offer all kinds of food.

Best time to travel: Nov-March

Hello People.

Rajasthan is all about travel, culture, food and heritage. The only Indian State when you will come across many forts of famous kingdoms and their ancestral heritage. In every part of Rajasthan you will find many forts.

Chittorgarh Fort is one of them.

Chittorgarh Fort is regarded as the symbol of Rajput chivalry, resistance and bravery.
The Chittorgarh fort is one of the largest forts in India. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fort was the capital of Mewar and is located in the present-day town of Chittaurgarh. It is situated on the left bank of the Berach river (a tributary of the Banas River) and is linked to the new town of Chittorgarh.

Chittorgarh is well connected by all means of transport and the nearest airport is Udaipur Airport ( 70 kms). The place is having many cheap accommodations as well good luxury hotels. You have to buy a ticket to enter the fort and you can also hire a guide at a nominal fee of INR 100-200. The fort is well managed and you will many truth inside the fort.

The fort and the city of Chittorgarh host the biggest Rajput festival called the "Jauhar Mela". The Chittorgarh fort houses many palaces, like the Rana Kumbha Palace, the Fateh Prakash Palace, the Tower of Victory and Rani Padmini's Palace. All these structures are significant for their Rajput architectural features. There are also many temples within the fort. You will all these in one fort only.

I would recommend everyone to visit this fort if you’re around this place.

We went with a tuk tuk driver for the afternoon which cost us 500 INR, this was excellent value as the attractions in the fort are quite spread out. This made it a lot more enjoyable as we didn't have to trek from place to place. The driver was not a guide which suited us, he did a brief intro and then waited while we wandered round. the two towers are stunning with the level of intricacy of the carving on each storey...Gorgeous views all in all a great afternoon out.

Chittorgarh Fort : Forgotten with time. The Government needs to improvise on the monuments and havelis.
The Palace though being massive hardly provides the aura as seen in the forts of Jaipur and Jaisalmer.
Since the fort cannot be covered on foot and due to people staying inside the fort it has become very difficult to maintain.
The entire place is just the ruins of the palaces and havelis that used to be. The guides would explain you well only if you are keen in historical data and analysis.
You need to pay for the entry fees of 40 per person for the entire place and car parking charges of INR 40
Once you reach individual monuments, there is nothing that catch holds of your eyes and leaves you amused.
The conditions of the Ratan Singh palace, Rani padmini niwas and the johar kund remains below average.
Guides will be after you on their motorcycles literally forcing you to hire them.
Overall it's not recommended to visit the fort unless deemed necessary.

We hired a ricksha and guide in one. He charged 1000INR and we spent 3 hours around the various temples and monuments. The guide price was not worth the amount of guiding he did, but the going around and enjoying ourselves without understanding too much was just fine.
Really enjoyed the climbing up the tower and that despite it being a Sunday and a public holiday, the monuments were not overly crowded.

This is a historical place or we can say, it's a city which has many historical places like vijay stambh, kirti stambh, kumbha palace, etc all are inside the fort. First of all, this place should b visited in rainy or winter season as everyone has to walk much and that to in open, so in summer, it will b little bit difficult but in evening hours, it may b ok.
You will need a guide coz with out guide it will b like wandering in a forest. Local guides are available at very cheaper rates, I paid 300/-. Fort is open in all days from 9 am to 5 pm and after 5 pm they close entry but u can watch light show. Ticket is 40 per adult and 35 for car. Go with ur vehicle as it's area is 13 km as told and it will take minimum 3 hours with vehicle to cover only important/ selected places. Food will b available inside fort also at state tourism restaurant and local vendors are also available inside Fort. There are handicrafts shops also inside the fort where u can get sarees made up of different fibers like tulsi, sitafal, bamboo with the scent of sandal (Chandan) .
So everyone must visit once if u love historical places.

Spare 4-5 hours for the Fort. Take an auto rickshaw (Costs Rs.450) and a guide (Rs.250) for the whole tour of the Fort. Don't forget to buy sarees at a store located inside the Fort for your mom.

This is the largest fort in India and it was the capital of Mewar. There are numerous palaces, courtyards, temples, water bodies and a couple of commemorative towers. The main attractions are Vijay Stambha, Kirti Stambha, Rana Kumbha Palace, Fateh Prakash Palace, Rani Padmini's Palace, Meera Temple and Kalika Mata Temple. The fort complex is spread over a huge area and it is advisable to come here by own vehicle as the entire fort can be covered by car. Hiring a guide is recommended if someone is interested to know all the history and details associated with this fort. Around 2 - 3 hours is required to visit the entire fort complex.

We went here from Udaipur and the journey was about 2.5 hours - 120 kms. Guide charges were 200/- One can take horse ride, camel ride and photos in traditional costume. RTDC cafeteria provides clean toilet at a nominal charge of 10/- per person. We had good lunch at hotel Gangaur. The guide will take you to a cultural shop but avoid buying as Hathi Pol has much better variety and pricing.
