Vijay Stambha, Chittaurgarh

(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Constructed to celebrate victory over the Mughals, this is an awesome Tower, with exquisite detailing. 
  • Actually far more impressive on site than can be captured in any photograph and well worth of a monument to victory.

  • Vijay Stambha  is an imposing victory monument located in Chittorgarh fort in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India.It was constructed by Mewar king Rana Kumbha in 1448 to commemorate his victory over the combined armies of Malwa and Gujarat led by Mahmud Khilji. The tower is dedicated to Vishnu.
  • Two Words - Just Amazing. If you say that this piece of architecture can compete the Qutub Minar, I even might agree with you.
  • Tall huge minaret in the middle of Chittorgarh Fort. You can go inside the minaret but it remains crowded generally. Be wary of the stink though, so typical of closed ancient monuments nested by birds.
