Chittorgarh, the fort at chittor, is the largest fort complex in india.
Rajasthan has two living forts one is at chittor and second is Jaisalmer.
Chittor is most valuable for in mewar.
Chittorgarh was under attack 3 times from a more powerful enemy, each time, its people chose death before dishonour, performing jauhar.

Greatest Fort I have ever seen

Amazing Fort with 8 poles(doors) truly amazing. MEERA'S TEMPLE, PADMAWATI PALACE, TEMPLES AND Kirti stambha and vijya stambha everything is amazing. Thousands of stories and numbers of king resides on it. Chittorgarh is the name of a great fort tell us the story of rana Ratan Singh and his beautiful queen Rani Padmawati. It tells the great sacrifice story of panna dhay ( caretaker of Rana Uday Singh who built the Udaipur City).

A Trip to Chittorgarh

I had been to Chittorgarh by road in the month of December 2016. Chitaurgarh is a must-visit destination in the tourism circuit of Rajasthan. The must-visit attractions around Chitaurgarh include the Chitaurgarh Fort, Rana Kumbha Palace and the Meera Temple. Chitaurgarh is one of the most popular forts of Rajasthan with 7 gateways and is an embodiment and virtues of the Rajput clan. The fort is spread over 700 hectares and there are many water pools within reach of this majestic structure. The water reservoirs contain 4 million liters of water. Rana Kumbha ruled over Mewar from 1433 to 1468 AD for a long and prosperous period of 35 eventful years. Maharana Udai Singh was born in the palace of Rana Kumbha. In this same period, Rana Kumbha defeated the mighty Mohammad Khilji. The iconic Meera Temple stands a testimony for the real love Meera had for Lord Krishna. Rana Kumbha built the majestic Meera Temple. There are idols dedicated to lord Vishnu and other important gods and goddesses here.

Interesting place for the people interested in archeology.

A big city full of helping people & police. Fort is situated in outskirt of city. If you have your own vehicle, good, else you can hire autos. Google maps easily led you to the fort. There are 7 gates you have to pass one by one with narrow streets, steep slopes & curves. Roads are good to reach. Get entry & parking ticket after 7th gate. Parking is 20/- per four Wheeler & 15/- entry fee pp over 15 years. Entry ticket is needed only to visit Padmini palace else all other places in fort are free. Padmini palace is OK to see. Nothing to loose if not visited. One parking ticket can be use at all parkings of fort. Worth visiting places in sequence are Rana Kumbha palace, museum, Mira temple, Vijay Stambh, Gau mukh, Kalika Mata temple, Padmini palace. All places are ruined by time but shows it's gloriousness of the time. People interested in archeology, must visit it. Too much monkeys are there but you can share your food easily with them. Only fruits & snacks available for foo ding on the fort. 3 hours is enough for full visit of fort.

Historians Paradise

Chittorgarh - The mightier the name sounds is exactly how the place has been in the history. The City Palace situated on the Hill top is not only one of India's largest but Asia's Largest fort. Certainly a day may not be enough to tour the whole place as it is so vast but one may cover up all the main attractions if started early. Apart from the Jaisalmer fort the Chittorgarh fort complex still houses the general public.

As it well connected with road and rail services I preferred the later. Took an early morning train from Udaipur and reached Chittorgarh within 3 hours. After reaching the station hired an auto rickshaw and reached the city where one can start for the palace.

After breakfast I was headed to the fort. Though you have an option to hire an auto rickshaw to reach the palace but I preferred to walk but with the essentials like a water bottle, cap and sunscreen and camera of course. On your way up you will come across the seven huge entrances or gates or pol (as they were called in ancient times). Why seven because as the King of the Fort was Decedent of the Surya Dev and Surya Dev has 7 horses in his chariot so that is why. Also you may spot the Memorial of Rao Jaimal and Patta Singh Sisodia, the two great warriors of the last war with Emperor Akbar.

After a walk of about 20-30 minutes you reach the palace entrance. At the starting point there is a small park where you can get a 180 degree view of the city. Moving further is the museum located in the Fateh Prakash Palace where you may have a glimpse of some ancient weapons, the dresses of the Rajput King and Queens and a photograph of the fort taken from the helicopter. Next is the Kumbhal Mahal or the Rana Khumbha Palace. It is the place where Maharana Udai Singh father of great Maharana Pratap Singh was born. Also the first Jauhar (funeral pyre) was conducted by Maharani Padmini in an underground tunnel now closed for visitors. Next is the Vijay Stambh, a pillar with beautiful carvings on the walls and nine stories tall. Near to the Vijay Stambh was the Meera temple of Meera bai, the great devotee of lord Krishna. Also next to it are the ruins of the Jauhar Kund where the 2nd and the 3rd Jauhar took place led by Rajmata Karnavati and the wife of Rao Jaimal respectively. Rajmata Karnavati was the grandmother of Maharana Pratap Singh. The 3rd Jauhar was the biggest of all as it resulted in the sacrifice of about 25, 000 women and children. A jauhar mela is held on 3rd April every year to commemorate these supreme sacrifices. From the Meera temple there is a way to Gaumukh reservoir and definitely it is quite huge. Once it used to be the main source of water to the whole fort complex and was created with a view to fulfil water supply to the people during war time. Moving on there was the Jain temple, Kalika mata temple and the Padmini Palace. Padmini Palace complex has the palace, the Jal Mahal and garden area. The next stop was the Kirti Stambh built by the Jain merchants in the memory of the first Jain pilgrim who successfully completed his journey and returned safely. Near to the Pillar is the old Suraj Pol or the main entrance to the fort until the time of Rana Khumbha. Through the gate you have a splendid view of the Battlefield where all major battles took place whether it was against the ruler of Gujarat or Alauddin Khilji.

That concludes my visit to the fort and the city. Being an avid historian this place was certainly on my list and would surely recommend to everyone. As the tour ended around 4:00 pm so I left for Udaipur.

The biggest and the shiniest historic fort

Chittorgarh Fort is one of the largest fort in India, situated in the city Chittorgarh in Rajasthan. The fort is huge and if you have your own vehicle specially bike then you can visit the whole place even the unseen places too. Few of pictures are shared here also. You can reach Chittor easily by train or by road from any part of India as Chittor is a major railway junction of Rajasthan also well connected with some national and state highways like NH 8, NH 76, etc. So the fort has seven huge gates, the first gate is Padan Pol. Near the very first gate there is a pathway, a pedestrian pathway that takes you to a very peaceful and beautiful place which is a waterfall. Tourist do not know about this only the locals who are living there knows about this place. This waterfall is actually built by the 'gaumukh kund' which is the main water supply of the fort. Very nice and peaceful place you would like to rest for some times and also bath there. Now return to the main road and climb upto the seventh gate. Full village is living in that fort complex with all amenities like school, medical, shops etc once you reach to the seventh gate you actually entered into the fort complex. There you can see Vijay Stambh which is made by Maharana Kumbha, it's 37 meters in height. There is also Kumbha Palace and Kalika Mata Temple. We had bike so we proceed to search for some more unseen places, now we reached to Rani Padmini Mahal, the palace is between the water pond, it is saying that a mughal emperor had heard about the queen's beauty and he wanted to see her but Rani Padmini did not allow him to see directly instead she said that he can see her reflect in the water only, when he saw the reflection he became crazy about her and wanted her in any cost and this leads to a war and in this war the Rajput army lost the war and Rani Padmini along with her maids had committed 'jawhar' to save their dignity and respect. Then we proceed further and we saw a wildlife sanctuary in the fort, you can see group of deer and many wildlife animal in their natural habitat.

The overall palace visit is very adventurous and you will definitely enjoy the time with your friends, the best time to visit Chittor is monsoon, at that time you can see the beauty of fort at its peak.

Good place for history lovers

Chittorgarh is around 170 km from Kota, another city of Rajasthan. Fort is really worth to visit as it speaks too many things about history of Chittorgarh. Vijay Stambh, Padmini Palace, Meera temple, Jain mandir all has their significance & relevance during the period, when the fort was built. Since the fort area is big & every structure is scattered over a large area it is better to visit here with some preparation. Move here with shades, drinking water (or you will get coconut water at some places), cap & good sport shoe.

Nice place to go!

It's very good location for picnic the whole city can be seen from the fort. The only minus point is that it's dirty, it lacks cleanliness. But the history is very awesome full of devotion and war. Such an awesome place. Beautiful time spent here.
