Chittorgarh Tourism Guide

Chittorgarh is that township of Rajputs that has embossed its name in Indian history as a state that keeps its pride, honor and respect before death. It had set an example before the world that one should sacrifice ones life before accepting disrepute and slavery. It was not just the kings but also the queens, who portrayed immense courage, chivalry and gallant before a superior empire.
Chittorgarh Tourism Guide
Chittor was attacked thrice by superior armies and each time the rulers fought till their last breadth to save their turf from being taken over. When Ala-ud-din Khilji came to claim Rajput princess Padmini as his own wife, all the women along with the princess immolated themselves in a mass suicide preferring death over dishonor. The Chittorgarh Fort in the heart of the city is the main attraction here, which will take you in the time machine to the days of battles, romance and sacrifice of the Rajputs.


Chittorgarh has its name mentioned in the great Hindu epic Mahabharata as a place where the mightiest Pandava, Bhim, struck the surface so hard that water came gushing from the ground, to take the form of a reservoir. Between 8th and 16th century the town remained under the Sisodia empire of the Rajputs. The main architectural edifice of the town, the Chittorgarh Fort, was built during this time perios by Sisodia king Bappa Rawal.

It was in 1303, when the town saw its greatest of battles and sacrifices, when Ala-ud-din Khilji sieged the fort to captivate the beautiful queen Padmini. But Padmini chose to die with dignity rather than to live with dishonor and committed mass suicide with other women and children in an act called Jauhar.

Again in 1535, a superior army attacked the town. This time it was Bahadur Shah, the emperor of Gujarat. The Rajput men and women came forward in large numbers to fight with chivalry before declaring Jauhar. The final attack took place in 1568, when Mughal emperor Akbar sacked the fort. Like always, the Rajputs didn't deter to put their whole strength to drive off their enemies. But finally, jauhar was performed again. Though this time Maharaja Udai Singh II fled to form his empire in Udaipur. In 1616, the town was returned to its original rulers by Akbar's son Jahangir.
