Skywatch Friday – Victory Pillar @ Chittorgarh!

Written by Poorna & Brinda

Chittorgarh. The name has an iconic status in Indian history. The impregnable fort, the valour of Rana Pratap Singh are legendary.

We are on a long road trip covering Rajasthan and Gujarat. Yesterday, we were in Chittorgarh – this is the third time we visited this place – and we always liked the fort, the palaces inside. The monument in the fort that stuns you is the ” Vijaya Sthambha” or “Victory Pillar”

Built by Maharana Kumbha after his victory in 1448 AD, this 37 meteres high pillar is not only tall but also has exquisite carvings on it. We clicked it in the late afternoon. The towering pillar against the blue colour of the sky was lovely. Please take a look and click on the pictures to see them in original size.

We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon city” or “Garden city” of India.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.
