The fort is a living example of the bravery of the Rajputs, its main highlight is the Kirti Stambh, which is a seven-storied structure with a cramped stairway of 54 steps. It is 30 feet at the base and narrows down to 15 feet at the top and is adorned with Jain sculptures on the outside. It is dedicated to the first Jain tirthankara or spiritual teacher, Adinath, and has an impressive 5 feet high statue of the saint. Vijay Stambh or the victory tower is the most imposing structure within the Chittaurgarh Fort. The tower alone stands at a height of 122 feet and is 30 feet wide at the base. There are 157 steps and the stairs are circular. The tower was built to commemorate Rana Kumbha's victory over Mahmud Khilji of Malwa. The entire structure is covered with sculptures of Hindu deities and episodes from the two great Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, with names given under each piece of sculpture.

The Sammidheshwara Temple is near this tower. Gaumukh reservoir and the palace of Queen Padmini are important spots to the south of the Rana Kumbha Palace. Gaumukh is close to the opening of the cave where Rani Padmini and the other women are believed to have performed jauhar. Other spots worth visiting are the Bhimtal Tank, Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, Meera Temple, Kumbha Shyam Temple, and Kalika Mata Temple
