  • It's too in chittodgarh its glory of meerabai .the night show was the best

  • Mirabai was a 16th-century Hindu mystic poet and devotee of Krishna. She is a celebrated Bhakti saint, particularly in the North Indian Hindu tradition. Thousands of devotional poems in passionate praise of Lord Krishna are attributed to Meera in the Indian tradition. Hindu temples, such as in Chittorgarh fort, are dedicated to Mira Bai's memory. Meera unwillingly married Bhoj Raj, the crown prince of Mewar, in 1516. He died of battle wounds in 1521. Both her own father and her father-in-law were killed within a few years after her husband, Vikram Singh became the ruler of Mewar, her in-laws tried many times to execute her, such as sending Meera a glass of poison and telling her it was nectar or sending her a basket with a snake instead of flowers, she was not harmed in either case, with the snake miraculously becoming a Krishna idol (or a garland of flowers depending on the version). Mira Bai left the kingdom of Mewar and went on pilgrimages. In her last years, Meera lived in Dwarka or Vrindavan.
