  • Great place for those who want to feel the history. Each and every monument placed there reminds the bravery and sacrifices of our ancestors and make us feel proud to be born on such a great land. Better to have a guide with you this will save your time and listening the story associated with every monument will surely give you goosebumps. Now days ticket registration is online and on the fort you will have network issues so it is advised to do it before.
  • The Chittorgarh fort, in the city of Chittor (southern Rajasthan) is beyond fascinating. It conjures images of warriors and grandeur, ominous heroes and simpler times. The victory tower stands impressive and strong, whilst the fame tower looks as though it was the place of many happening in ages gone.
