The Tower of Victory

In India, in days gone by, a victorious king would build a Vijai Stambh, 'Tower of Victory'. The finest surviving tower is that of Chittaurgarh in Rajasthan. This nine-storeyed tower erected by Rana Kumbha to commemorate a victory in 1440 AD is 36m high and took almost eight years to build!
Decorated along its entire height by sculptures of Hindu deities the tower was long a symbol of Rajput invincibility.
