We all have heard stories of Chittorgarh from the time we were kids. Chittorgarh resonates the stories of bravery, sacrifice and courage of Rajputs.
When To Visit: The best time to visit Chittorgarh is during the extended winter season, which generally starts from October and lasts will February. We visited Chittorgarh during the last week of December.
How to Visit: Chittorgarh can be reached easily from Udaipur in around 2hrs by road/ train. From Jaipur Chittorgarh is around 5.5/6hrs drive.
Stay : There are many budget hotels in the Chittorgarh city and most of them offer a beautiful view of the fort , situation atop the Hills. We stayed at Hotel The Grand ,Chittor which has fort/ river view rooms. It was genuinely a great stay and food(vegetarian only) was also good .
Chittorgarh fort is obviously the most iconic tourist location here. It is a majestic fort and stands atop the 180m high hill and spreads across 700 acres. There are many families staying inside the fort even now.
Though, the violent attacks over the period of time has demolished parts of the fort , however some part of it stands tall even today!
This fort is huge and definitely cannot be covered by walk! The best plan is to take your own vehicle or rent an auto. They can take you to the important locations. Consider hiring a guide and they can walk you through the history and bring back the memories of the stories that we have been hearing since childhood.
