Chittorgarh Fort

This fort is also known as Chittor Fort and it is one of the largest castles in india. It is also a world Heritage site which is a substantial demarcation. It dates back to the 7th century which makes it one of the oldest castles/forts in the world.


This is an intesting castle. It has an extremely long history and a significant amount of violence surrounds this castle including sieges and more. One of the most noteworthy things about this castle is that it is referred to as a "Water Fort". That moniker is given to it because at one time it had 84 separate bodies on its grounds which covered 40% of its area. That is a lot of water. And it was in a wide variety of water bodies including step wells and ponds.
