Attractions

Chittorgarh_fort.jpg

Chittorgarh Fort

Chittorgarh Fort is one of the most important places to visit in Chittorgarh. This historical fort is the pride of the Rajasthani town as it stands imposingly upon the top of a hill, looking down protectively over the city. Nearly all of Chittorgarh’s attractions are housed inside the fort. 

The Chittorgarh Fort is a massive structure which was first built in the 7th century and covers an area of approximately 700 acres. There are several grand sights to be seen inside the fort itself apart from the commanding views that can be seen of the environs of Chittorgarh.

The fort, which is also known as Water Fort, contained 84 water bodies inside its grounds, of which 22 exist today. The Vijay Stambh, Kirti Stambh, Rana Kumbha Palace, Meera mandir and other consequential structures are also housed inside the formidable fort. 

Timings: 9:30 am to 6:30 pm
Price: Rs. 10 for Indians; Rs. 100 for foreigners 
Location: Chittorgarh, Rajasthan 312001

Bala Quila Fort

Also known as the Alwar Fort, the BalaQuila Fort is one of the most historic destinations in Alwar, and is one of the tourist attractions in Alwar that should not be missed when you are in the Rajasthani city. Extending over an area of 5 kilometres, the fort stands stern and forbidding at a height of 1000 feet with 15 large and 51 small towers and 446 openings for musketry.

It was first built by Hasan Khan Mewati in 1550, but has since seen various dynasties rule over it as Alwar passed into the hands of Khanzadas, Mughals, Pathans and Jats. The fort still stands as imposing as ever, and is a great place to visit during an evening in the city. 

Timings: 10 am to 5 pm 
Location: Bala Quila   Rd, Near Nikumbha Mahal Palace, Alwar, Rajasthan 301001
Bhangarh_fort_alwar_18833.jpg

Bhangarh fort

If you are looking for some thrills in Alwar, visiting its “most haunted place” is the best way to fulfil the desire. Bhangarh Fort, on the border of the Sariska Tiger Reserve, has long held its spooky reputation. Though it is a well-preserved fort, the ‘supernatural’ occurrences that seem to occur within its premises tend to ward off many people.

If you are eager to explore Alwar in all its facets, haunted and otherwise, a visit to this fort is a must. Do it while the light lasts, since ghosts are said to hang out here at night. Though spooky, Bhangarh Fort is one of the best places to visit in Alwar for some unique memories.  

Timings: 6 am to 6 pm
Location: Gola ka baas, Rajgarh Tehsil, Alwar, Bhangarh, Rajasthan 301410

Tower of Fame (Kirti Stambh)

The Kirti Stambha is a one of the lovely tourist attractions of Chittorgarh. Housed inside the massive Chittorgarh Fort, this 12th century tower stands as a monument to Adinathji, the 1st Jain Teerthankar.

It is decorated with the naked figures of the Digambars, and reflects the cultural beliefs of the Digambars comprehensively. There are seven storeys in the tower, and a narrow and steep staircase leads to the top from where views of the Chittorgarh environs can be taken in. 

Timings: 9:30 am to 6:30 pm
Price: You only need to pay the entry price for the fort 
Location: Chittorgarh Fort Village, Chittorgarh, Rajasthan 312001

The Palace Museum

The Palace Museum, also known as the Government Museum, is a worthwhile place to visit when in the city. There is a wonderful range of artefacts that are displayed in the museum that speak of the history of Rajasthan, and of Alwar in particular.

The entire collection of the museum comes from the Royal families reserves and consists of 234 sculptures, 11 inscriptions, 9702 coins, 35 metal objects, 2565 paintings & manuscripts, 2270 arms & weapons and 1809 objects of local art, crafts and musical instruments. Spending a couple of hours in the museum is a good way to initiate yourself into the history of Alwar and take back memories of its unique culture and tradition. 

Timings:10 am to 5 pm
Location: City Palace, Alwar, India
Chittorgarh-vijay_stambha-01-20131014.jpg

Vijay Stambha (Victory tower)

The Vijay Stambha stands tall and mighty in the premises of the Chittorgarh Fort. Built in 1440 AD by Maharana Kumbha to commemorate his victory over Mohamed Khilji, this 9-storyed tower is adorned by sculptures of Hindu deities around and reflects the historical traditions of its age quite successfully.

The view from the top of the structure is breathtaking- there are steep steps that lead to the top of the tower, from where the whole town is revealed in all its glory. 

Timings: 9:30 am to 6:30 pm
Price: You only need to pay the entry price for the fort

Padmini_palace_2c_chittorgarh_2c_rajasthan.jpg

Padmini's Palace

Loacted inside the Chittorgarh Fort, the Padmani Palace has a unique history attached to it making it one of the must-visit attractions in Chittorgarh fort. This palace was the reason for the battle betweenAla-ud-din Khilji and Rana Ratan Singh. Padmini Palace was the very legendary palace from where Ala-ud-din Khilji was permitted to obtain a glimpse of Padmini in a mirror placed in the main hall.

Allured by her beauty, Ala-ud-din Khilji fought a fierce battle with Rana Ratan Singh, husband of Rani Padmini. A visit to this palace gives one an insight not only into the history of Chittorgarh but also into human passions. The palace overlooks a lovely pool, and the views from inside are delightful.
