Fort- Chhattisgarh

Chhattisgarh takes its name from the 36 ancient forts in the area (chhattis is literally thirty-six and garh means fort).

Chhattisgarh is a storehouse of literature, performing arts and crafts, all of which derive their substance and sustenance from the day-to-day life experiences of its people. Chhattisgarh has a rich literary heritage with roots that lie deep in the sociological and historical movements of the region.
The state is known as the rice bowl of India and also has a rich tradition of food culture.
