Chittorgarh is the largest fort in India and has a circumference of 8.1 miles with a maximum width of 1.9 miles. To get to the fort, one must walk a steep half-mile long zig-zag pathway and cross a bridge that spans the tiny Gambhiri River.

Within the fort complex, you’ll find 65 historic structures. This includes 4 palaces, 19 temples, and nearly 20 ponds and wells. It also includes two famous stone towers – Vijay Stambha and Kirti Stambha.
