Kirti Stambh

Kirti Stambha of Chittorgarh is a 22-meter-tall tower built by a Jain Merchant (Jijaji Rathod) in 12th century.  The main purpose behind its commission was to glorify Jainism. It is also known as the Tower of Fame and is located inside the Chittorgarh Fort Complex. The tower is dedicated to the first Thirthankara, Sri Adinath. Figures of Thirthankaras indicate that it belongs to Diganmbara sect. Jain Saint’s figures are neatly carved on the Stambha, adding to more charm are columned balconies and latticed arches. At the top is an observation hall which can be reached through a narrow flight of stairs; visitors are awarded with a splendid view of the vicinity. Many Jain followers consider Kirti Stambh a major pilgrimage centre.
