It’s a very full-filling and is a mixture of corn, curd & some spices.How to Return ? Best way is to take a local bus for Jaipur. * Nearby places to Visit from Chittorgargh ! - Udaipur : 2 h 34 min (118.7 km) via Chittorgarh Rd and RJ SH 9( via bus seems a perfect & time saving option)- Kumbalgarh : 3 h 58 min (151.4 km) via NH 758( There is no direct buses or train for Kumbalgarh, so you may take a bus for Udaipur and then from there you can take a Taxi or local bus to go further for Kumbalgarh )
* Only one good Hotel i found was “The Fort Haveli”-Can use Gps or can ask local people about the location.-Though it looks a little congested from front but don’t be disappointed. LOOK AT THE INSIDE PICTURES!-Had one of the best experience in this hotel as it was beautiful from inside, quite vintage but royal.What to Order?-Ask for Masala chai & Maggie. Worth every penny!!-Also at night if you want to have local home food, you need to ask them a little prior so that they can cook nicely.( Only complaint from the hotel was their delayed service. So better order 2 hours prior to get it on time !!! )
Next day morning we visited Chittor Fort. The fort is one of the largest forts in India. The majestic appearance of fort takes you straight back to the Rajput-Mughal era and you feel the exciting royal stories from within.
Chittorgarh Fort was built in 7th century by the Mauryas. It's one of the largest forts in India and Asia. It was declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013. Once being the capital of Mewar, the fort has several historical palaces, gates, temples & two prominent commemorative towers. It has been through three major sieges in the past by Mughals, and it's Hindu rulers fought fiercely to maintain their independence. When faced with defeat, men fought till their last breath, while the women committed suicide by Jauhar. It's also has been a land of worship for Meera, a 16th century Hindu mystic poet and great devotee of Krishna.
We started off in our car at 9 am in the morning after having breakfast at the hotel. The road to Chittorgarh is quite smooth courtesy the NH. We reached the city at around 12:30 pm. After having Dal Bati thali lunch in Chittorgarh, we started for the fort! So, the fort is having a circumference of around 13 km. There is the winding road up till the entrance of the fort. There are multiple Pols (the older name for entrance gates in Hindi) to the fort. We took a guide at the entrance as we wanted to soak into the history of this marvellous place. In the past, both the royal family and the civilians used to stay inside the fort. As per our guide, even today ~5000 folks stay inside this mini-city while the descendants of the royal family (King Kumbha on whose name is the fort) has moved to Udaipur. It is a UNESCO World heritage site and houses multiple tourist spots, viz., Kumbha Palace, Padmini Mahal, victory tower, Meera Mandir, Kirti Stambh, Jain temple, Gaumukh Kund.
