Chittorgarh, also known as Chittaur, from the 7th millennium to the Sixteenth, was the investment of Mewar under the Rajputs. Chittaur brings up remembrances of excellent gallantry and compromise by Rajput men and ladies in the sporadic fights that they had to battle against intruders from North West or Delhi. Chittaur experienced both the problems of war and the triumphs of the soul. Allaudin Khilji who popular King Padmini of Chittaur, penetrated the town in 1303 A.D. King Padmini and the females of the judge given up themselves in a pyre of flame rather than publish to anybody. This superior compromise has been known as 'Jauhar' and epitomises the fantastic soul of the Rajputs of the day. The town appears scattered with typical monuments and battlements as proof of the blood vessels and gore that it went through in Middle Ages.
Chittaurgarh epitomizes Rajput soul, valour, pleasure and romantic endeavors. It reverberates with gallantry and compromise the stories of which are still sang by the Bards of Rajasthan. The magnificent and awe motivating citadel appears on a 240-hectares website, on 180m great mountain that increases quickly from the flatlands.
It has one km zig-zag climb to it. The street brings through seven gateways to the primary checkpoint Rampol (meaning Gate of Ram). On the climb between the second and the third checkpoint, you see two ‘Chattris’ (cenotaphs) designed to respect Jaimal and Kalla characters of 1568 stress by Emperor Akbar. The primary checkpoint of the citadel itself is Surajpol (meaning Sun Gate).
The citadel dropped three times to the opponents in its whole record. The first strike happened in 1303 when the Sultan of Delhi Ala-ud-din Khilji, confused by the attractiveness of King Padmini, surrounded the citadel with scary style to catch the queen. In 1535 Bahadur Shah, the Sultan of Gujarat, surroundedthe citadel resulting in tremendous carnage. It is said that 32000 men dressed in the saffron gowns of martyrdom and rode out to deal with certain loss of life. The females individuals led by Rani Karnawati dedicated Jauhar (collective self-immolation by fire) to preserve their respect.
In 1568 Mughal Emperor Akbar overcome it. In 1616, Mughal Emperor Jehangir renewed the citadel to the Rajputs. Now, a new township sprawls below the mountain on the western part.
