Archaeological Museum, Chittorgarh Overview

Archaeological Museum of Chittorgarh displays a valuable collection of artefacts belonging to the royalty of Chittorgarh. Located inside the Chittorgarh Fort, on the eastern end of the Banbir Ki Diwar, it is visited quite often by history and archaeology enthusiasts. The museum houses many artefacts from the Chittor Fort along with some ancient relics belonging to the Hindu and Buddhist Religions excavated a few years ago. Right from the entrance, the Archaeological Museum is bound to take one back to the past. The paintings, sculptures, apparels, weapons, coins, frescos, inscriptions and other metal and terracotta figures give a glimpse into the regal lifestyle of the Rajputs. The mighty Chittor Fort is a preferred spot for picnickers and visitors never miss the Archaeological Museum once they are here.

The glorious museum was built in the 19th century during the reign of Maharaja Fateh Singh. It was initially a part of the Fateh Prakash Palace which converted into a museum by the Government of India in 1968. The Palace architecture is an example of modern Indian form of construction and hence stands out from the other traditional forms seen in the fort premises. Archaeological Museum is, therefore, of great historical importance. Some of the artefacts are thousands of years old dating back to the Gupta and Maurya Dynasties, especially the Jain and Hindu relics recovered during excavations. There are Jain Temples and Buddhist Stupas also inside the fort premises. Everyone must visit this wonderful place where tourists can find traces of the Rajputana family under one roof.
