The pride and glory of Rajasthan, Chittor echoes with the tales of romance and valour unique to the Rajput tradition. Arunied citadel where the royal past lives in its imposing forts. graceful Palaces and spectacular chhattris. The forfied settlement has been ravaged thrice and each time outcome was 'Jauhar' - when women and children immolated themselves on huge funeral pyre while men donned in saffron robes of martyradom rode out of the fort towards a certain death.

The historic hilltop fortress of Chittaurgarh, replete with heroic tales of the Sisodia rulers. Capital of Mewar for 800 years, repeatedly ravaged by Muslim invaders, it epitomises Rajput values and valour.
