INFORMATION ABOUT CHITTORGARH
The history of Chittor is one of the most stirring chapters in Indian history for it was there that the flower of Rajput chivalry sprang to life and the immense stretch of its sacred walls and ruined palaces relate the saga of innumerable sieges and heroism which has almost become a myth now. Western railways connect Chittorgarh on the metre guage with Ajmer, Delhi, Jaipur, Ratlam, Udaipur. However the convenient railhead is Udaipur. Rajasthan State Roadway Transport Corporation operates regular bus service from Agra 557 kms, Ajmer 182 kms, Delhi 578 kms, Jaipur 320 kms, Jodhpur, Kota 000 kms, Mount Abu 390 kms and Udaipur 115 kms to Chittaurgarh.
When the city was built in the 8th century by Bappa Rawal (ruled 734-53A.D.), it was named Chittorgarh. That was a long time ago and just the beginning of one of the bloodiest histories that a town has ever seen. Famous for being besieged by invaders, Chittorgarh traces its origin way back to the Mahabharata, according to one legend. Although the foundation of Chittor is attributed to Bappa Rawal, the fort is considered to be one of the earliest in Rajasthan.
