Vijay Stambha, Chittaurgarh

4.7
#2 of 20 in Things to do in Chittaurgarh
Built to commemorate King Rana Kumba's victory over two combined armies led by Mahmud Khilji, Vijay Stambha has withstood the test of time. The original 1448 tower still stands, with nine floors rising in 37 m (122 ft) of red sandstone and white marble. Carvings of various Hindu gods and goddesses adorn the structure, accompanied by inscriptions underneath. Each floor of the tower is distinctly marked with either windows or balconies. Inside, a spiral staircase leads through the galleries to the top. For Vijay Stambha and beyond, use our Chittaurgarh travel itinerary maker to get the most from your Chittaurgarh vacation.

    Wow. The tower actually has stairs that take you up to the top from where the entire Chittorgarh Fort is visible. The architecture is remarkable and the stairs are star.

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.
