Vijay Stambh

Vijay Stambh or the Tower of Vicory, an impressive nine-storeyed and 37 meters high stone-built tower, is covered with exquisite sculptures of Hindu deities and representation of episodes showing great epics - Ramayana and Mahabharatha. Vijay Stambh, meaning Victory Tower and a star attraction of Chittor, was built by Maharana Kumbha in 1448 to commemorate his spectacular victory in a war with Mehmood Shah Khilji, the Sultan of Malwa, and Kutubuddin Shah, the Sultan of Gujarat. The tower, 122 feet (37 metres) high, has nine storeys, a flight of 157 steps along a narrow passage leading to the top. The tower is an excellent specimen of Hindu sculpture. Its walls, both exterior and interior, are adorned with mythological characters and scenes. From the top the view of the vast land around—field of many historical events—is enchanting.
