ChittorgarhLegends of medieval concepts of Rajput honor, romance and valor haunts the ruins of the citadel of Chittaur where one can see glimpses of the imperial glory of the bygone era in its daunting forts, stylish palaces and fabulous 'chhatris'. The three great attacks on this unfortunate fort led to 'Jauhar' (a Hindu custom where royal ladies and maidens committed self-immolation to save their honor from the cruel hands of the enemy.) Their men would cover themselves up in the sacred ashes of these funeral pyres and walk to their deaths with a heavy heart and a will to kill-or-die. The land has given birth to the likes of Maharana Pratap who continued to defy Mughals till his death, despite of all the hardships that he had to bear. Even his enemies thus respected him. Today, Chittorgarh attracts tremendous interest from tourists all over the world, who come here to behold the wonders of some of the finest examples of Rajput architecture and the influence of Mughal style on them.
