Chittorgarh, the legendary city of Rajasthan, is the epitome of Rajput pride, romance and spirit. Known as the city of bravery and sacrifice, Chittorgarh was one of the most fiercely contested seats of power in India. Many legends and tales associated with heroism and sacrifices of the passionate men and women of Chittorgarh make it a wonderful place to visit.

Tourist Attractions in Chittorgarh The prime tourist attractions in Chittorgarh include the magnificent Chittorgarh Fort, Vijay Stambh (Tower of Victory), Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame), Rana Kumbha's Palace, Padmini's Palace, Kalika Mata Temple, and Government Museum among many others.

Chittorgarh Fort: One of the most formidable forts in India, Chittorgarh Fort is the symbol of the Rajput valiancy and supreme sacrifice. Standing majestically on a steep180 m high hill, the massive Chittorgarh Fort is approachable through a 1 km long zigzag road. The road leads through seven gates to the main gate Rampol. On the climb between the second and third gate you see two chattris (cenotaphs) built to honor Jaimal and Kula- heroes of 1568 siege by Emperor Akbar. Surajpol is the main gate of the fort.

Vijay Stambh (Tower of Victory): Built by Maharana Kumbha in 1440 AD to commemorate his victory over Mahmud Khilji, this 37 m high 9-storied tower is adorned by sculptures of Hindu deities. There are around 157 narrow steps leading to the terrace from where one can enjoy a beautiful view of the enchanting Chittorgarh town.

Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame): Dedicated to Adinath, the 1st Jain Teerthankar, Kirti Stambh is a must visit tourist attraction in Chittorgarh. A narrow stairway takes you through seven stories of the tower to the top. The 22 meters high 7- storied tower was build by a wealthy Jain merchant in12th century AD.

Rana Kumbha Palace: The most massive monument inside the Chittorgarh Fort, the Rana Kumbha Palace is a ruined edifice of great historical and architectural interest. It was the palace where queen Padmini and other women committed Jauhar (self immolation) to protect their honor and pride.

Padmini Palace: Built beside a beautiful lotus pool with a historical pavilion, it is the place where Alauddin Khilji saw the reflection of Queen Padmini and got so mesmerized with her beauty that he decided to possess her at any cost leading to jauhar, mass suicide of women in the fort.

Kalika Mata Temple: Originally built as a Sun Temple in the 8th century A.D., the temple was later converted into Kalika Mata Temple in the 14th century, dedicated to the mother Goddess Kali- the symbol of power and valor.

Other not to be missed tourist attractions in Chittorgarh include the famous Kumbha Shyam Temple, Gaumukh Reservoir, Meerabai Temple, and Archeological Museum.
