Chittorgarh Fort is vastly spread out over 600 acres and is the largest Fort in Asia. One needs a vehicle to see all of it.
The fort is famous for the mass suicide that the women committed three times as an honourable way out, rather than submit to the victorious Muslim forces.
Called Jauhar, the women donned their wedding saris, left their handprints on the wall and then jumped into the fire. After this, the men wearing orange turbans used to rush out of the fort, attacking the enemy and finally on to their death. The fort complex has many ruins, many palaces and you will be told the story of Princess Padmini.
