Dropping in at the magnificent Chittor Fort

Chittor Fort is located more or less equidistant between Bundi and Udaipur, and is the largest and most impressive fort complex in India – which is some claim! Chittorgarh, once the capital of the Sisodia Rajputs of Mewar, represents the quintessence of Rajput pride and valour. It was here that the chivalrous Rajputs - men and women - repeatedly gave up their lives, preferring death to dishonour and surrender. Throughout its history, this fortified settlement saw siege after siege but refused to bow before foreign power. The ruins of the great monuments at Chittor speak volumes of the many grim and glorious deeds of heroism and sacrifice.
