Chittaurgarh fort is the largest fort in Asia. The fort is built on 280 hectares of land and is probably one of the most beautiful fort in Rajasthan. What makes the fort unique is the fact that it was self sufficient in water with 84 water bodies in the form of wells, ponds and step wells with the storage capacity of 4 billion litres of water. However, there are only 22 water bodies remaining today.

The fort comprises of Saat Pols or Gates and each has been built as massive stone structures with secure fortifications for military. The reservoirs, chhatris, stambha, palaces and temples are the attractions of this fort. The fort is massive and thus requires atleast a day for a thorough tour.
