Chittorgarh Sightseeing Tour

 

Chittorgarh, also called Chittaur, a symbol of all that was brave, true and noble in the glorious Rajput tradition, was the capital of Mewar under the Rajputs from the 7th century to the 16th century. Chittorgarh is the epitome of Rajput (Indian warrior caste) pride, romance and spirit for people of Chittor always chose death before surrendering against anyone. It reverberates with history of heroism and sacrifice, and that is evident from the tales sung by the bards of Rajasthan till date. History tells us that, Chittorgarh was attacked three times, and on each occasion, the ritual of 'Jauhar', which involved throwing oneself into raging fire or a well, as the case may be, to be spared from humiliation at the hands of the enemy, was performed. The first instance was in 1303, when Allauddin Khilji, Sultan of Delhi, coveted the famous Rajput beauty, Rani Padmini. Padmini led the Jauhar, rather than submit to dishonour. The second instance, was in 1535, when the Sultan of Gujarat attacked Bikramjeet of Chittorgarh. Rani Karnavati led the Jauhar, in which many women and children were killed and finally by the Moghul Emperor Akbar, in 1567, in and attempt to subdue Maharana Udai Singh.
