One of the most beautiful temples around, the Meera Temple in Chittorgarh is one that actually revels in a divine aura. As Chittorgarh was the birthplace of Meera Bai, the most ardent devotee of Lord Krishna, Rana Kumbha had the Meera Temple built to honour her devotion to the God. The Temple consists of gorgeous idols which are carved on its pillars, walls, outer limits and in the sanctum. On the walls of this temple are also inscribed the bhajans (songs of devotion) Meera wrote and sang in praise of Lord Krishna.

Chittorgarh Fort

Posted by kotakota On February - 21 - 2014 Comments Off
Tales, legends, romance and courage are common things to be associated with the massive Chittorgarh Fort, which is often touted as the symbol of Rajput pride. Consisting of majestic structures like the Vijay Stamba and the Kirti Stambha and gorgeous temples, this fort has been in existence since the 7th century. Another interesting fact about the fort is that it has also been named as the Water Fort, as the fort initially had about 84 water bodies, which were sufficient to keep an army of 50,000 people in the for 4 years without any concern for thirst. Considering the fact that this fort is located in the desert state of Rajasthan, this is no small achievement!

Legend has it that the Chittorgarh Fort was one home to a very beautiful queen by the name of Rani Padmini. Such was the beauty of this lady that stories about her grace and charm floated to places far and wide. Hearing of all this, Ala Uddin Khilji wanted to witness the lady and capture her. This led to a war between the Muslim forces and Rana Ratan Singh’s army, in which major parts of the Chittorgarh Fort were destroyed and many lives were lost.

Before the seige of Ala Uddin Khilji, the Chittorgarh Fort was considered impregnable, but misfortune seemed to have released its fury on the place after 1303, as the place was first captured by Bahadur Shah in 1535 and subsequently by Akbar in 1567.
