Vijay Stambha, Chittaurgarh, Rajasthan

Vijay Stambha

One of the largest fort in India with a history of more than 1000 years, seen many wars, victories, and ruling of Rajput. Must see the architect of fort, temples. The concept of keeping a house cool during summers, (Rani Padmini Palace). It's amazing, to see water coming from an unknown source at Go Mukh. Once in a lifetime if you have a chance, must visit this place

Built in the 15th Century by Rana Kumbha to commemorate his victory over the armies of Malwa and Gujarat, the Vijay Stambha proudly relates the story of Rajasthan's courage and valor, especially on the battlefield. Built partially in red sandstone and partially in white marble, the Vijay Stambha is decked with marvelous carvings of Gods, Goddesses, and floral patterns.
One of the iconic structures in the ruined Chittorgarh Fort, this structure has about 150 narrow stairs which lead you to the top of the tower. Once you have reached the top, you can enjoy sprawling views of the Fort, which are practically unrivaled. With all its architectural splendor, the Vijay Stambha makes for a beautiful place to click some spellbinding shots.

Largest fort indeed!! approx 13 km long with multiple temples and havelis..good part is that you can take your car inside the fort..a piece of advice: read up about the place before visiting..fort remains open till 5:30 pm and post that there are light and sound shows available to watch. Have ample amount of time to visit the entire fort area, its quite a distance.

Best Season: October - February
