Kalika Mata Temple, constructed in the 8th century, is believed to be one of the oldest temples of the region. King Bappa Rawal of Sisodia Dynasty built the temple as a Sun Temple. However, during the 14th century, Maharana Hamir Singh established an idol of Kalika Mata inside the temple.
Since then, it became popular as the Kalika Mata Temple. Goddess Kalika symbolises valour and power and is believed to be the protector of Chittorgarh. The Kalika Mata Temple has a beautiful architectural design with several magnificent carved pictures and sculptures. The annual festival attracts a large number of devotees who come to seek blessings of Kalika Mata.
