The Chittorgarh Fort is the largest fort in India and the grandest fort in the state of Rajasthan. The fort, which is also called Chittor, was the seat of power of the rulers of Mewar.
The fort was attacked three times between the 15th and the 16th centuries and was captured by invaders. The bravery and courage of the Rajput warriors, their womenfolk and children is what distinguishes this fort from all other forts in Rajasthan. After each defeat, the brave women and children of the Rajput warriors performed Jauhar or self-immolation.
The fort is symbolic of the courage and values of the brave Rajput rulers who reigned over Mewar.
