  • 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.

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.
