Historic Site Landmark
A World Heritage Site and one of the largest of its kind in India, Chittaurgarh Fort provides a rich tapestry of military and cultural history.

Unearth the monuments and historical remnants strewn across the site, each hinting at their own piece of Rajputian history. You can discover a maze of 22 ponds and wells, originally part of a network of 84 water bodies connecting the palaces, temples, and walkways of the site.

  • One of the best places visited Till date.... It would have been 8th wonder on earth if it would have been built completely... What a marvellous work of art and architecture and what a great thinking / vision of old kings!!!
  • 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.
  • World Heritage Site.....As Well as one of the largest forts in India. ...Feel honored on visit such beautiful heritage site ..must visit

Where to stay in Chittaurgarh

From decadent heritage hotels to no-frills budget bed and breakfasts, the small range of lodgings in Chittaurgarh caters to every budget. The cheapest options surround the rail and bus stations--modest lodgings offering the basics for an overnight stay. For a more memorable experience, look to the shores of the river and borders of the ancient fort, where historic buildings offer high-class service coupled with impressive city views.
