Kanwar, Dharmendar

₹ 795.00

The fort of Chittorgarh stands elevated over a 180 meter high hillock and covers a massive area of 700 acres. The antiquity of Chittorgarh is difficult to trace, but it is believed to have been built by the Maurya rulers in the 7th century AD. This book attempts to give you a glimpse into the checkered history of Chittorgarh, that has witnessed some of the bloodiest battles ever-three great sakas (sieges) and some of the most heroic, almost super-human deeds of valour, that are kept alive by the local musicians.
