This massive fort, covering about 700 acres of land, once enclosed a huge town. It remained the seat of power of the mighty rulers of Mewar Kingdom from the early 13th-century to 1567 when Akbar ransacked the fort. This wasn’t the first time that Chittorgarh was ransacked; there were two previous sieges in which the enemies had wreaked havoc on this fort. The geographical location of Chittorgarh had made it vulnerable, hence in 1567 Uday Singh abandoned this fort and shifted to a new city – Udaipur. So, for Chittorgarh, the time has stopped and it only stands to tell the stories of its good and bad times. Chittorgarh is 120 km from Udaipur.
