  • The fort of Chittaurgarh is a moment of history outside the circuits tourist classics but really worth visiting. It is a fort that unlike the Red forts in Delhi or Agra, is what gives it a soul. Do not hesitate to stay two days

  • Great structure build in past. But poorly maintained by government. Such a historic place. Good or should visit once I have visited thrice still craving to go. Some part is not open for visitors. Overall a good destination to visit with family.
  • Nice fort and holds amazing history. Best fort i ever visited nicely built. It is a city in itself huge fort having many palaces on it. It is built on hill top. Amazing views of full Chittorgarh city. Should visit this fort and require full day to explore every palace in it. Beautiful for photography as well. Should visit on cloudy day or in winters.
  • It was a dream to visit The Chittaurgarh Fort, and it was as wonderful as something can be to the extreme. In the fort we feel the history, the bravery and it is amazing feeling. It takes almost entire day to visit entire fort. I have visited here 4 times in last 3 years, and would like to visit here more and more. It has a legendary history and you must visit to see and feel the history. 5/5
  • It's an amazing tourist destination. Visitors can cover the fort and other places in a day. One can come across with many of the historical facts of this place in detail which you may not get in text or other. This place is simply awesome. food as well as people are are good.... appreciation should also to be given to the management staff for their eagerness to maintain it
  • Historical place with some mesmerizing stories. Guides are available on entrance point. Make sure that they will show you all the important places on fort. As fort is too big you can roam in your own vehicle. Do not pay more than 500 INR to guide and best time to visit fort is between 9am to 12 noon.
