About Chittaurgarh
The pride and glory of Rajasthan, Chittaur echoes with the tales of romance and valour unique to the Rajput tradition . Alauddin Khilji was the first to sack Chittaur in J303 A.D., overpowered by a passionate desire to possess the regal beauty, queen Padmini. When the situation worsened, Bhim Singh, the ruler of Chittorgarh, led his men donned with saffron robes of sacrifice, and rode out of the fort to certain death. Inside the fort, women, including Padmini and the children, committed mass suicide or jauhar by immolating themselves on a huge pyre, rather than losing their honor at the hands of the enemy.

In the middle of the 15th century, Chittorgarh gained eminence when the legendary Rajput ruler, Rana Kumbha, ruled it.
