Title: Travel Guide for Chittorgarh : Grandest estate of Rajputana

About Chittorgarh Chittorgarh in Rajasthan is
situated 115 km to the east of Udaipur and spread
over an area of 700 acres. It is located beside
a high hill near the Gambheri River. Chittorgarh
is full of historical forts, palaces, temples
and towers. The history of Chittorgarh holds an
important place in Indian history and is brimming
with heroic tales of the great Rajput warriors.
The origin of Chittorgarh can be found in history
from the 7th century. Chittorgarh was earlier
known as Chitrakut, after a local Rajput named
Chitrang. The kingdom of Chittorgarh was given as
dowry to Bappa Rawal, who established the Sisodia
dynasty at the time of his marriage to princess
Solanki in the mid-8th century. Bappa Rawals
descendants were the rulers of the place from the
8th to the 16th century. The most important site
of Chittorgarh is the Chittorgarh Fort. It is a
patriotic emblem built in remembrance of the
victory of the kingdom over Mohammed Khilji. The
Tower of Victory or Vijay Stambha, as it is
called, has nine floors which have carvings of
Hindu gods and goddesses and stories from the
epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. The tower is
37 metres high. Maha Sati, a sacred place, is
located at Ahar in Chittorgarh. Maha Sati is
famous for its natural reservoir, Gangodbhawa
Kund. According to mythology, it had been found
that that a tributary of the Ganges flows
underground and emerges here as Ahar River in
which this Kund is
originated. Hence, it is believed that this
reservoir contains sacred water. Maha Sati is
also known for an ancient temple dedicated to
Lord Shiva. The best way to get around
Chittorgarh is by cycle or auto rickshaw.
Rickshawallahs here, sometimes, also double up
as guides. Rajasthan is known to be a haven for
shoppers and so is Chittorgarh. Tourists can buy
a variety of tie and dye fabrics, silver
jewellery, metal work and shoes from markets such
as Rana Sanga Market, Fort Road and Sardar
Bazaar. Ganger is the prime festival celebrated
in Chittorgarh, followed by other festivals like
Diwali and Holi. Chittorgarh has an arid
climate. The weather is quite hot in the summer
season but the winters are cool and pleasant.
The best time to visit Chittorgarh is from
September to March. The nearest airport to
Chittorgarh is in Udaipur, 90 km away. The town
is well connected to other major cities like
Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, Ahmedabad and Indore by
