Historically, it is considered that Chittor was built by the Maurya dynasty in the 7th century AD. The fort is surrounded by a circular wall which has seven huge gates before one can enter inside the main fort area. Chittor was one of the most contested seats of power in India with probably some of the most “glorious” battles being fought over its possession. By tradition, it remained the Mewar capital for 834 years.” url=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chittorgarh”]
