Know About The City:
Chittorgarhpronunciation(helpinfo)(alsoChittororChittaurgarh) is a city and a municipality inRajasthanstate of westernIndia. It lies on theBerach River, a tributary of theBanas, and is the administrative headquarters ofChittorgarh Districtand a former capital of theSisodiaRajputDynasty ofMewar. The city of Chittaurgarh is located on the banks of river Gambhiri and Berach.
Chittorgarh is home to theChittor Fort, the largest fort in India and Asia. It was the site of three major sieges (1303,1535, and15671568) by Muslim invaders, and its Hindu rulers fought fiercely to maintain their independence. On more than one occasion, when faced with a certain defeat, the men fought to death while the women committed suicide byjauhar(mass self-immolation). Chittor also has been a land of worship forMeera.
Originally called Chitrakuta, the Chittor Fort is said to have been built byChitranga, a king of the local Maurya dynasty (not to be confused with theimperial Mauryans).
TheGuhila(Gahlot) rulerBappa Rawalis said to have captured the fort in either 728 CE or 734 CE.However, some historians doubt the historicity of this legend, arguing that the Guhilas did not control Chittor before the reign of the later ruler Allata.
In 1303, theDelhi SultanaterulerAlauddin Khaljidefeated the Guhila kingRatnasimha, andcaptured the fort. The fort was later captured byHammir Singh, a king of theSisodiabranch of the Guhilas. Chittor gained prominence during the period of his successors, which includedRana KumbhaandRana Sanga. In 1535,Bahadur Shahof Gujaratbesieged and conqueredthe fort. After he was driven away by theMughalemperorHumayun, the Sisodias regained control of the fort.
