Vijay Stambha, 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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Chittaurgarh trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This monument is very beautiful structure and amazing. The Vijay Stambha is a remarkable example of religious.The Tower was built by the Mewar king Rana Kumbha in 1448 .This place must visit with family and friends.
  • Beautiful architecture in the chittorgarh fort complex. In total it has 9 floors. Earlier people were allowed to go to the top of the stambh but due to security concern the entry inside the stambh is restricted. The outer walls of the stambh contains idols of hindu deities. Locals believe that the circumambulation of the stambh is equivalent to char dhaam yatra.

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.
