History of Chittorgarh

History of Chittorgarh is replete with the valiant tales of Rajput kings and warriors. Legendary founder of the Sisodia dynasty, Bappa Rawal received Chittor, with all its formidable fortifications, during the mid eighteenth century as dowry from the Solankis. Chittor is seated at a sprawling seven-mile- long hill, and covers 700 acres of areas which also include its fortifications, towers, temples, and palaces. Today, all these monumental structures form an integral part of Chittorgarh tourism

Steeped in a tumultuous yet glorious history, Chittorgarh, also known as Chittor, has seen numerous valiant battles that Rajput men and women had to fight against the invaders from Delhi, including the siege of Alauddin Khilji, who invaded the historical city in 1303 A.D.

As you unveil the stunning attraction, the self-sacrificing story of Jauhar performed by Rani Padmini may just send shivers down your spine. It is one of the most important historical facts about Chittorgarh. Crammed with water moats and roof pavilions, the most famous attraction in the fort complex is the Rani Padmini Palace. The dilapidated palace still rings the courageous story of Rani Padmini out loud in its every corner.
