This new town is known as the Lower Town and has nothing much in specific to allure the tourists.

Chittor's was defeated in the first war which was occurred in 1303 when Ala-ud-din Khilji attacked on it,besieged the fort in order to capture the beautiful Padmini, wife of the Rana's uncle, Bhim Singh. When defeat was inevitable, the Rajput noblewomen, including Padmini, committed jauhar and Bhim Singh led the orange-clad noblemen out to their deaths.From 7th to 16th century A.D.,the Chittargarh Fort, the region known as Mewar, was being ruled by the Sisodia and Gahlot kings. Chittaurgarh during those days used to serve as the capital for these rulers.
