"Chittorgarh" was founded by the Pandava warrior Bhima. It is a place which shows the perfect blend of beauty, love, grace and courage. The fort is surrounded by a circular wall which has seven huge gates before one can enter the main fort area. When you are about to enter the city, you will be fascinated by the seven huge entries namely Bhairon Pol, Lakshman Pol, Padan Pol, Hanuman Pol, Jorla Pol, Ganesh Pol and the foremost royal gate known as Ram Pol.

The city is also known as Chittor, Chittaur and Chittur. There are many legends related to Chittorgarh. Some of them say that Chittorgarh was previously called Chitrakut and was ruled by Moris while the other says that Chitraranga built the fort and so was named Chittorgarh. There is also a legend in which it is stated that Bhima, brother of Yudhishthir, struck the ground which became a large reservoir of water and now it is called Bhimtal Kund.
