Lord Rama's Gate which had witnessed the bravery of warrior Patta and Jaimal

The Chittorgarh Fort has seven massive gates, which are linked by a circular road within the fort, and the main gate which is called Pol in local language is Ram Pol or Lord Rama's Gate which had witnessed the bravery of warrior Patta and Jaimal. All the gateways to the fort have been built as massive stone structures with secure fortifications for military defence. The door of the gate is studded by the steel spikes and top of the gate notched parapet for soldiers to defend the gate and fort. This gate in a way is symbolic of Indian Architecture influence and Hindu Culture, as Ram Pol faces the west and just after crossing the gate a temple dedicated to Lord Rama.Just in front of Ram Pol Chief of Jagawat also known as Chundawat dynasty and ancestor of the Rawats of Amit, Sisodia Patta had fought unto his death in the battle against the Akbar in 1567. Patta's and Jamal's bravery influenced Emperor Akbar. One will witness two cenotaphs near Padal Pol dedicated to Patta and Jaimal as known Patta's Memorial. For the magnificent views of the city and lower area a great insight for the bravery and real Hindu Culture, this spot is to be visited.
