Chittorgarh Fort - Review

For the tourists who are not aware of the history of Chittorgarh, this fort might come across as just beautifully preserved ruins. However, the ones who are aware would know that this is one of the sites that have defined the Rajputana pride and valour in India. The city as well as the fort are so well woven in the history of Rajasthan that there have been many tales and ballads that testify their glory. Chittorgarh Fort is an expansive fort built on the hilltop and is one of the most beautiful forts in India. Covering an area of 700 acres, this fort is actually a complex that houses many other royal structures and temples inside such as Kumbha Palace, Sringar Chauri, Fateh Prakash Palace, Kirti stambha and many others. Connecting all these points within the fort is the serpentine road which is quite steep and exhaustive to walk. In order to enter this fort, you will have to cross through seven huge gateways or 'pols', guarded by watch tower and massive iron spiked doors.

  • I love with this fort. I admire this Nice fort and it holds amazing history. Best fort i ever visited nicely built. It is a city in itself huge fort having many palaces on it. It is built on hill top. Amazing views of full Chittorgarh city. Should visit this fort and require full day to explore every palace in it. Beautiful for photography as well. Should visit on cloudy day or in winters. Amazing thinking that time to preserve water, they do the rain water harvesting that time. They built many water pounds that are still having water. Compare the work they did that time with limited resources to the govt now do with so much machines and resources. This fort had more than 80 water bodies out of which 22 are still there.

  • An awesome place to visit. The place is full of history and anybody interested in it will enjoy a lot. The place clearly is a state of art, the designs, the sculptures are splendid and out of the world views will make your day. Go with family and take a ride in our rich Indian culture and history.

  • It is so glorious that we have to hire an auto to see the complete fort. It is really very convincing and paisawasool visit to the fort. There are many things to enjoy here. The best part of this fort is try the ethnic wear/traditional cloths and have a photo shoot in the open studio. But there must be better local guides to talk about the fort and its glorious history..

  • Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. To see the greatness, you should come having read some history. Temples have been reconstructed. Guides are easily available. Auto rickshaws can be hired to travel inside fort.
