    Chittorgarh Fort Rajasthan India.
    Chittorgarh Fort is a monumental place for wonderful artifacts and generations of puzzles. I booked tickets with my friends and It seems that foreign tickets are more expensive than national ones. However, Chittorgarh Fort is a nice place to visit.

    The biggest fort
    It’s the biggest fort in India, built on a flat mountain top. So many Rajputana history connected with it. It was so difficult to conquer n so easy to protect. But as always someone from inside gives away the secrets, and it was too conquered couple of times. Plenty history with this fort too, it’s spread over a huge area. Good that the car by vehicle / taxi are allowed all around. Vishnu temple, Meera temple n the jain temple were at first stop. Vijay stambh, jauhar place , shiv temple n the gomukh kund followed. Rani Padmini palace was the next one, n the last one were Kirti stambh n jein temple. We were there for few hours n that’s why so much running around, to actually all in the fort area, one will need at least 2-3 days. Guide is a must if visiting first time but they r the one rushing from one place to other.

    Seeped in History of Mewar
    The Chittorgarh fort is an amazing place. Located atop a hill, it has several different palaces and temples which are simply magnificent…. The place where Rani Padmini committed Jauhar is also located within this fort. Legend has it that Meerabai also lived in this fort. A temple dedicated to Lord Krishna was constructed where she could pray The famous Vijay Stambh and Kirti Stambh are also located here. Also it is widespread, yet it is accessible by vehicles. It is recommended to carry water and wear comfortable shoes as a lot of walking is inevitable Altogether, a great historical experience

    A Historical Marvel
    Excellent tour! We gained indepth historical insights thanks to our fantastic guide Trilok Salvi who provided thorough details in English. The fort itself is majestic and hosts some of the most majestic temples and remnants of palaces. Highly recommended.

    A must do on a Udaipur visit
    Amazing and awe inspiring structure with so much history. A must do on a Udaipur visit as its a days trip from there. The road is good and the drive takes about 2 hours. Its good to engage an official guide from near the ticketing office. Some haggling over the price is the norm. You can drive through most of the fort stopping for various historical structures. A late lunch outside the exit gate at the family run Gangaur restaurant was a treat. The thali was quite phenomenal.

    Excellent fort
    Superb fort to visit. Use your own car to drive through and hire a guide. Or else you can park below the fort and use a hired autorickshaw. A full perimeter round is recommended. The architecture is fabulous, although many structures are in ruins.

    The Colossal Fort
    Chittaurgarh Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dominates the city's skyline. Built in the 7th century, it witnessed several battles and reflects Rajputana grandeur. The Vijay Stambh (Victory Tower) and Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame) are iconic structures within the fort. Chittaurgarh also boasts temples like Kalika Mata and Meera Bai, showcasing a blend of Hindu architecture. The city resonates with tales of valor and is a testament to India's rich cultural heritage.

    Relive the history
    Very good fort. It is a very big fort lying in a big area. I would suggest to hire a guide to relive the history associated with this fort. The night lighting outside is visible from far away and provides a great view of the fort.

    A guide who opened our eyes
    This is a shout out to Parvati Sukhwal, whom we had the pleasure of meeting during a visit to Chittorgarh Fort. This was a last minute decision, so didn't know who we would get as a guide. Parvati was amazing! She quickly sized up our interest in the culture, history and sociology of the region and mesmerized us with an evolutionary history from the Mauryan kings of the 6th century to the Rajput kings who came later. Artefacts and monuments came to life as she explained the contexts in which they came about; why the fort fell as many times as it did; and why it proved difficult for Maharana Pratap to take it back. Parvati also runs a Boutique Homestay with her husband called Padmini Haveli, which is located within the fort. She, and our visit to the fort, was a highlight of our 8-day trip to Rajasthan. Considering that the 3 members of our group were all above 60, she had to design a route that suited our physical constraints - a feat she managed with aplomb. And, oh yes, she can guide in English, French, Hindi, Marwari, and Telugu, among the languages I discovered.

Chittorgarh Fort is a 7th-century marvel, perched on a 180-meter hill, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore stunning architecture and delve into Rajasthan's heroic past. Witness the legendary Jauhar sacrifice and wander the vast 700-acre complex, encompassing palaces, towers, and reservoirs. Admire the Vijay Stambh (victory tower) and Kirti Stambh (Jain homage). Take advantage of the museum's artifacts and sculptures for a deeper historical dive.

Chittorgarh Fort is unique in the sense that it has motorable access to all its key points of interest. The way you visit this fort is that you get dropped at 4 to 5 points and at each point you have to walk some distance and climb a few steps to visit the point of interest i.e. temple, fort entrance, jauhar site (think Padmavat) etc. Meera was married into the family here and this is where she stayed and devoted her life to Krishna. Meera's temple of her own is surely a point of interest. Jauhar stories of this place is a stark reminder of the brutalities and ugliness of war and fellow human beings as much as it tells about the courage and resoluteness of the womenfolk. Steeped in history, this fort tells the story of Muslim invaders attacking Hindu kings and the resistance that they faced. All in the name of religion, then as much as it is now.

Chittorgarh is a majestic fort with an awe inspiring history of sacrifice and valour of the Mewar kings and queens. It is a must visit for anyone who loves to immerse themselves in the stories of glories of the past.

It takes 2.5 to 4 hours to have an immersive tour of the fort.
Due to its massive expanse, all the palaces, temples and towers are accessible through vehicles, and the ticket prices are also very reasonable.

The thing that greatly took away from such a significant experience, are the Guides.
Firstly, the Guides here leave out a lot of points that need to be visited like the Shringar Chowk and Topkhana as they try to fit the whole tour in an hour.
And more importantly, most of the Guides are quite outwardly religiously and politically biased and distort historical facts to suit their propaganda. So my suggestion would be to study a little about the history of Chittorgarh before visiting so that you are not misguided by any possible false narratives. ( Col. James Todd's accounts seem to be pretty comprehensive and true to facts. )

The light and sound show promises of great potential but due to religious and political biasness again, some parts of the show have been edited and music has been added to cover up the lack of dialogues. Still, the view of Chittorgarh, in the evening lights is a beautiful sight in itself.
