Chittaurgarh and around

This is a relatively undiscovered corner of Rajasthan but is home to some of the state's oldest and most interesting treasures. Chittaurgarh's 'Tower of Victory' has become well known in recent years, but the whole of this ancient, historically important city is worth exploring. Kota and the area around Jhalawar contain some of the oldest and most impressive temples and cave paintings in India, while nowhere takes you back in time as far as Bundi, seemingly untouched for centuries. There are limited rail connections in this area, but a new highway being built pretty much across the whole of southern Rajasthan will greatly improve travel in this region. The road should be complete by 2010. Limited transport links mean that a visit to this region does require a little more time and effort than to other areas in Rajasthan, but also that the region has remained uncrowded, unspoilt and hugely hospitable.
