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.
I have given information on Chittorgarh Fort in the tip section.
This amazing old lady has been selling these postcards most of her life outside Chittorgargh. She is 101 years old.
Colours are bright in Rajasthan- look at the way this little princess is dressed
