The Kirti Stambh is an ancient tower built in the 12th century inside the Chittargaurh Fort. The tower is supposed to have been bulit by a rich Jain merchant to honour Jain Tirthankaras (Saints). The carvings on the tower walls are beautifully done and form a good setting for photography at this monument inside the Chittaurgarh Fort.
