Heritage stay in Chittorgarh

By Mrs Saumyata Tiwari  & Major Arvind Tiwari

A visit to this very historical town of Chittorgarh reminds you of “The Rajput valor” and “Rajput values” of the medieval times. Values which regarded the “Rajput honor” above everything else and values which The Rajputs and their Army upheld at any cost whatsoever, even to the peril of their lives. Accounts of historians are replete with tales of how this “Land of the Brave” gave a befitting reply to the onslaught of the Persian invasion on their soil, to the extent of defeating them in many decisive battles fought over a period of time.

The scale and the glory of the military victories accomplished by MAHARANA PRATAP have parallels in history only by some Sikh Kings of Punjab and Maratha Kings of Maharashtra. Every inch, every monument, every alley, every track, every fort, every small little construction of this unsung town is a living testimony to all the heroism and patriotism of highest order displayed by the sons of the soil. i.e. The Rajputs and the traces of it shall linger on forever till eternity.

  1. A palace turned into a place I can stay?! Sign me up! What a cool experience that would be. I would love to feel like royalty even if only for a few days 🙂

    1. Hi Jessica,
      There are options of Heritage stay in most parts of north India including Delhi, Jaipur, and chittorgarh as mentioned in this post. Do let us know your travel plans and we’ll get you the experience you want!

  2. The Haveli sounds like a wonderful place to stay when visiting the old fort of Chittorgarh. I can picture myself visiting the rooftop terrace enjoying the sweeping views. I also like how the hosts offer several activities for exploring the area. No need to worry about travel planning, they have you covered.

  3. I love the idea of staying in old homes. I’ve heard of castles in Europe, but not an ancient palace in India! I’m heading there for the first time in March (for Holi and more) and I’m definitely going to have to try to make this a stop!
