Brief of Chittaurgarh
The story of Chittaurgarh in the north Indian state of Rajasthan is a saga of valour, tenacity and sacrifice. Chittaurgarh (also spelled Chittorgarh) is a treasure trove of history and offers to the traveller an insight into the life of the Great Rajput rulers, who laid down their lives fighting a superior enemy instead of leading a life of submission under them. The hilltop fortress of Chittaurgarh echoes the romantic, doomed ideal of Rajput chivalry. Today, the Chittaurgarh Fort

is a abandoned, peaceful ruin standing on a 280-ha area atop a 180m hill bulging abruptly from the surrounding plain region. This historic monument to heroism is a fine example of the Rajput style of architecture.
