Chittaurgarh also spelt as Chittorgarh echoes the tales of great Rajput rulers who fought fiercely, to queens who preferred death to dishonour. The eventful history of Chittaurgarh dates back to the times of the Mahabharata. The legend (associated with the Bhim Laat) has it that the brave Bhim, stomped the ground with such force that a water body was born.
