The Holy Hindu Trinity
Arguable the most beautiful temple in all the temples that grace the Chittorgarh Fort, this temple spots a statue of the Hindu Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh – the creator, the preserver and the destroyer). Legend has it that a jilted Allaudin Khilji went on a rampage after Queen Padmini jumped alive in fire, after King Kumbha was killed in the epic battle of Chittorgarh. In his fury, he destroyed all the idols which had been instituted in the temples, but since the fort has been built using sandstone, it survived his attacks. The structures are actually older than the idols because Mewari tradition does not encourage worshipping of damaged idols.
