A tiny little town by the Berach River in Rajasthan, Chittorgarh is known for its pride, romance and spirit, and for people who never laid down their arms before anyone. This town is rife with stories about bravery and sacrifices made, of the undying spirit and heroism of the people of Chittorgarh. Colloquially referred to as Chittor, this city is the administrative headquarters of Chittorgarh district and the erstwhile capital of Mewar's Sisodia dynasty. Chittorgarh is known for the Chittorgarh fort, which is a stark symbol of the glorious history of the Rajputs. The queens and other women of the royal households performed “jauhar”, which means self-immolation, when a more powerful military force was at their door. With such an opulent, though tragic, history, Chittorgarh should definitely make it to the bucket-list of travellers who love exploring different cultures and histories. Tons of hotels in Chittorgarh offer the best in comfort and luxury, so if you plan a visit to this city any time soon, make sure you book one of the lovely, palatial Chittorgarh hotels well in advance.
