Inside The Legendary Fort of Chittorgarh lies the Samadheeshwara Temple. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this temple was built by Raja Bhoja in the middle of the 11th century AD.

Raja Bhoja belonged to the Paramara Dynasty of Rajputs and he spent his youth in Chittorgarh where he built several other structures, the most appealing of which is the Samadheeshwara Temple. The temple was later renovated by Maharana Mokal in 1428 AD under the rule of Sisodias of Mewar.

Just Beside this Temple is the JAUHAR STHAL where Thrice in the History of Chittorgarh was JAUHAR committed by the Queen’s & all females to save themselves from the Muslim Invaders. As I was able to find out that the queen’s & their folks would take a bath & then do an elaborate Pooja & Offer at this temple & then jump into the JAUHAR KUND.


THE JAUHAR KUND located right next to the temple 70 ft deep has now been filled up by the ASI & till today The present day Rana of Mewar does a Yagna for the peace of those untimely dead souls of the Queen’s on every Kartick Purnima. The Yagna Sthal or Havan Kund is located inside the JAUHAR STHAL.
