The Town

Chittorgarh town itself is quite unspectacular.It has, however, an amazing history of Rajput bravery & sacrifice, the fort being the epicentre. The town, outside the fort walls, is a dusty, sleepy little place, like so many small cities in Rajasthan.Once an entire population lived within the walls of the fort.
Many of the houses are painted blue, and seemed fairly well kept up however. There are a few shops, and a handful of hotels. I don't think that many tourists actually stay here. Most people pass through on the way to visit the mighty Chittorgarh Fort. We visited on a day trip from Udaipur. We left at 7am in the morning, and arrived at about 10am. The scenery along the way is beautiful, so we stopped a lot, and took photographs. The road to Chittorgarh is good, and there were not very many cars along the way.

The Fort

I have given information on Chittorgarh Fort in the tip section.

THE OLD

This amazing old lady has been selling these postcards most of her life outside Chittorgargh. She is 101 years old.

AND THE NEW

Colours are bright in Rajasthan- look at the way this little princess is dressed

    Not such a good history for the women of the city. I'm sure the views and stone structures are fascinating to many visitors.

    So much history here, and so much to see! And it's great that you met such friendly, talkative people. (Colorfully dressed, too.)

    I would love to bide my time at a chai stop! The fort and Victory Tower would both be places I would want to explore!

    This fort looks amazing with the water reservoir and the inside. What a beautifully colourful page, Lynne :-) Me too, I am amazed about the postcard lady :-)
