    One of UNESCO world heritage. It is Asia's largest fort. The natural beauty is mesmarising but unfortunately we have not been able to preserve old heritage in a way we must have.

    I just found out that the "garh" in Chittorgarh means fort. This is the largest fort in India with a very rich history spanning hundreds of years. Would recommend the light and sound show which narrates the history in the form of a story. Would recommend a visit here surely.
