Valor of the Rajput
The city of Chittorgarh epitomizes the Chattari Rajput ideals of pride, spirit and romance. In its rich history and close association with the Rajput warrior clan, never has Chittorgarh surrendered to the enemy even though it was attacked thrice by a much stronger enemy. Instead, its people chose the ritualistic suicide sacrifice called Jauhar. This romantic allure of Chittorgarh history still persists strongly within the hearts of Rajput’s.
