                                                                       According to Alauddin Khilji's historian, a mirror was placed in the tower (on the left). Rani Padmini sat on the steps of Jal Mahal (center) and Khilji saw her reflection in the mirror. Khilji had attacked Chittorgarh (12th century) to see the beuatiful Rani Padmini and he was allowed to see her this way. However, the locals say this is an untrue legend
                                                                                                    
                       The postal system has been in existence in India since 1296. The Pathan ruler, Alauddin Khilji, had a horse-and-foot postal organisation to receive regular news of the condition and progress of his army.
