We'll pick you up from your hotel or your desire place in Jaipur at the agreed time and drive to Pushkar first. There are many legends surrounding this Hindu shrine as it is the principal place of worship in all of India which is dedicated to the God, Brahma. Although he has no other temple sacred to his memory, Brahma seems to have taken full advantage of the only temple where prayers are offered to him. Not only did he perform a Yagya (ritual fire ceremony) here, but he also dropped a sacred lotus from his hands to create a lake where people take a bath before they offer prayers. There is a silver turtle at the temple entrance, which is considered a symbol of his transport. Brahma temple is the best-known temple in Pushkar, but there are also four hundred other temples lining the banks of the lake. Though people visit here throughout the year, Pushkar in November, during the time of its annual fair, comprises a colorful mass of people and celebrations coinciding with the largest camel fair held in the world, that comes alive during the fair in a spectacular explosion of colors, sounds and activities. 2nd : Declared, A UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Chittorgarh Fort still preserves several palaces, memorial towers and monumental gates. As we tour the complex, we'll tell you the story of its legendary siege in 1303. According to legend, A love affair of Sultan Alauddin Khalji may have been the trigger for this important military operation. Explore the Chittorgarh Fort, the capital of Mewar, which sprawls over the hill 180 meters in height over an area of 280 ha above the plains of the valley drained by the Berach River. The fort has several historical palaces, gates, a temple and two prominent commemorative towers. Legend has it that Alauddin Khilji, who was the first to sack Chittor, was so besotted by the regal beauty of Rani Padmini that he was overpowered by a desire to possess her. But the noble queen preferred death over dishonor and committed "Jauhar" (mass self-immolation). Visit the 9-metre-wide Vijaya Stambha or the Tower of Victory, located within the Chittor Fort. The tower was constructed by Rana Kumbha, the Mewar king, in 1448 to commemorate his victory over Mahmud Khilji and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Continue your visit to the Kriti Stambha or Tower of Fame, another important feature of Chittor Fort. The Solanki-style architectural tower is 22-metre long and was established by the first Jain Tirthankar. See the Padmini Palace, home of Rani Padmini, lying near Chittorgarh Fort.
