Chittorgarh, the legendary city of Rajasthan, is the epitome of Rajput pride, romance and spirit. Known as the city of bravery and sacrifice, Chittorgarh was one of the most fiercely contested seats of power in India. The history of Chittorgarh is a saga of valor, tenacity and sacrifice. Seized thrice by superior oppositions, the ruler of Chittorgarh never surrendered to the enemies and its defenders laid down their lives protecting the dignity of its people and the land. The entire city echoes with the tales of love and gallantry unique to the Rajput tradition. Many legends and tales associated with heroism and sacrifices of the passionate men and women of Chittorgarh make it a wonderful place to visit.
The magnificent 7th century Chittorgarh Fort in Chittorgarh is the mute spectator of the Rajput valiancy and sacrifice who opted for death rather than surrendering to powerful and superior enemies. On the way to the Fort one can see two chhatris or memorials of Jaimal and Kalla, marking the spots where they fell while defending the fort during the siege of 1568. Other major tourist attractions of Chittorgarh are Vijay Stambh (Tower of Victory), Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame), Rana Kumbha's Palace, Padmini's Palace, Kalika Mata Temple, and Government Museum among many others.
