Spreading over an area of 700 acres, the city of Chittorgarh lies 115 km to the east of Udaipur. Crowning a 7-mile long hill, Chittorgarh is home to numerous palaces, towers, temples, etc. Chittorgarh is the epitome of Chattari Rajput (an Indian Warrior caste) pride, romance and spirit, for people of Chittor always chose death before surrendering against anyone. The history of Chittorgarh is very rich, full seizures and acquisitions. Bappa Rawal, the founder of the Sisodia dynasty, married princess Solanki. The kingdom of Chittorgarh was first given as a dowry gift to him in the mid 8th century.
