It is quite ordinary, doesn't differ with special artistic merit and does not resemble his famous 22-metre namesake in the Fort of Chittorgarh. Instead of the sculptural details of capitals on top of it just placed a lion. Column has no... More

Though area is known as Kirti stambh ,no one is spending time looking this actuals stambh (tower). Out side area is crowded due to local bus stand. junk fast food available easily. not recommended for foreign tourism

Although it is mentioned among 10 must sees in many blog, I found it quite uncharismatic, both location-wise and look-wise. It is nothing but a long pillar with lion atop. It may have a significant history attached to it, but my recommendation is NO-GO for short visitors
