The lush surroundings, the soothing sound of the flowing water, and the opportunity to enjoy nature in a tranquil setting. It's a great spot for nature enthusiasts and those looking for a break from city life.

Vijay Stambh

Prabhakar Pandey: The Vijaya Stambha is an imposing victory monument located within Chittor Fort in Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, India. The tower was constructed by the Hindu Rajput king Rana Kumbha of Mewar in 1448 to commemorate his victory over the army of Malwa led by Mahmud Khalji in the Battle of Sarangpur. The tower is dedicated to the Hindu God Vishnu.

Dr. Ram Raut: Vijay Stambh, aka Tower of Victory was constructed by Maharana Kumbha in the 15th century to commemorate his victory over the combined armies of Malwa and Gujarat. The tower is about 37 meters high and has intricate carvings depicting scenes from Hindu mythology. There is one more tower called Kirti Stambh, aka Tower of Fame, is another notable monument in Chittorgarh. It is a 22-meter high tower built by a Jain merchant in the 12th century. The tower is dedicated to Adinath, the first Jain Tirthankara, and features sculptures and carvings related to Jainism. Both these towers stand as iconic symbols of Chittorgarh's rich history and architectural heritage.

Maharani Padmini Palace: Gaurav Sharma: The Maharani Padmini Palace is located in the south of Chittorgarh fort. It's a beautiful 3 storied palace. It is one of the most visited places of the fort. It is situated in a lotus pond to which a staircase leads to here. But you can only see the palace from outside from a viewing platform.

Dr. Nivedita Ghosh : The Rani Padmini Palace is one of the forts inside the chittorgarh fort. The jal Mahal can be viewed from this place. This is my favorite stop among all the various architectural wonders in the Chittorgarh fort. It's beautifully maintained(except the mindless scribbles of names on the walls) and it's not to be missed. The history and stories of the place are also unique and interesting.

Rana Kumbha Palace Abhishek Gaurav : Rana Kumbha Palace is situated inside the Chittorgarh Fort in Rajasthan. It is located near the Vijay Stambha close to the entrance gate. The ruins of the once famous palace have the temple of Lord Shiva, Zanana mahal, Diwan -e -aam, along with a stable for horses. According to the legends, the founder of the city of Udaipur, Maharana Udai Singh was born here, and his life was saved by his wet nurse Panna Dai, who hid him inside a fruit basket. This place was once the home of the famous bhakti poetess Meerabai. It is also believed, that Rani Padmini organized her self- immolation or jauhar inside this fort.
