Kumbha Shyam Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, who is worshipped here as Varaha (His boar incarnation). The shrine was constructed by Maharana Sangram Singh I, upon special request of his daughter-in-law, Meera. It is located near the Kumbha Temple inside the Chittorgarh Fort.
The architecture of the temple resembles that of Kalika Mata Temple, also located in Chittorgarh. The beautiful shrine possesses a pyramidal tower, and a tall roof, while the floor has footprints of Meera's Guru, Saint Ravidas of Varanasi. Walls of the temple have beautiful images of several Gods and Goddesses. Devotees throng the place, owing to its serene atmosphere, religious significance, as well as the legends associated with it.
