The Chittor Fort or Chittorgarh is one of the largest forts in India. It is a UNESCO world heritage stage. The fort was the capital of Mewar and is located in the present-day town of Chittor It sprawls over a hill 180 m (590.6 ft) in height spread over an area of 280 ha (691.9 acres) above the plains of the valley drained by the Berach River. The fort precinct has several historical palaces, gates, temples and two prominent commemorative towers. 

Beginning in the 7th century, the fort was controlled by the Mewar Kingdom. From the 9th to 13th centuries, the fort was ruled by Paramara-dynasty. In 1303, the Turkic ruler of Delhi, Alauddin-Khalji defeated Rana Ratan Singh's forces at the fort. In 1535 Bahadur Shah, the Sultan of Gujrat, defeated Bikramjeet Singh and took the fort. In 1567 Akbar defeated Maharana Udai Singh-IIs troops. The fort's defenders sallied forth to charge the attacking enemy but yet were not able to succeed. Following these defeats, the women are said to have committed jauhar or mass self-immolation. The rulers, soldiers, noblewomen and commoners considered death preferable to the mass rape and pillaging that was thought to occur following to surrender to the Sultanate forces.
