 CHITTAURGARH - KALI MANDIR

This reputed region of Rajasthan, flashes across the mind many gruesome tales of supreme sacrifice of Rajput princes and their inimitable gallantry displayed during the rathless attack of Moghul emperors, not once but three times. Very inch of the impregnable palace fort and its environs are marked by tablets and samadhis of valiant Rajaputs. There are many monuments of eternal importance echoing the chivalrous character of great Rajputs. The Vijay Sthambh, Kirthi Stambh, grand places of Rana Kumbha, Padmini etc., recall to memory the ineffable fame achieved by them. Along with them, there are some shrines of supreme architectural beauty and superb sculptural craftsmanship. They are built in Indo - Aryan style and are adorned with exquisite marble images.

This Kalika Mata temple is said to have been built as far back as in eighth century and was given fine and attractive touches several times. It was intended for Surya Bhagawan initially and designed to match his glory in design and beautification, but later converted into Kalika Devi mandir. This was done in the fourteenth century. Suitable alterations were made before installing the Mother's icon and it is quite enchanting. It bends heads instantly. Though surrounded by many monuments in ruins, its attraction has not lost its grip over the devotes. Tourists, charmed by its splendour visit with great exuberance and admire every frame of construction. Devotees drawn by the benignity of the archamurti offer prayers. It is a miss-not mountent in the town of Chittur.

It is accessible by bus from Ajmer, Udaipur etc.
