Chittorgarh is the epitome of Chattari Rajput (an Indian Warrior caste) pride, romance and spirit, for people of Chittor always chose death before surrendering against anyone. On the climb between the second and third gate you see two chattris (cenotaphs) built to honor Jaimal and Kula- heroes of 1568 siege by Emperor Akbar.
Surajpol is the main gate of the fort. There are many tourist places in chittor like : Vijay Stambh (Tower of Victory), Kirti Stambh (Tower of Fame), Rana Kumbha Palace, Padmini Palace, Kalika Mata Temple.
Chittorgarh, also called Chittaur, from the 7th century to the 16th, was the capital of Mewar under the Rajputs. Chittaur evokes memories of great heroism and sacrifice by Rajput men and women in the intermittent battles that they had to fight against invaders from Northwest or Delhi. Chittaur witnessed both the ravages of war and the triumphs of the spirit. Allaudin Khilji who coveted Queen Padmini of Chittaur, invaded the city in 1303 A.D. Queen Padmini and the women of the court sacrificed themselves in a pyre of fire rather than submit to anybody. This supreme sacrifice has been called 'Jauhar' and epitomises the fiery spirit of the Rajputs of the day.
