Vijay Stambh (Tower of Victory) stands nine storeys tall inside the Chittorgad Fort, and was built by Maharana Kumbha to celebrate his victory over the Muslim rulers of Malwa and Gujarat in 1440. The tower is 122 feet high perched atop a 10 feet base. The tower features sculptures and carving across its periphery. The tower is open to visitors and offers panoramic views of the entire fort.
