Set in forested country, Bassi lay on the route of Mughal and Maratha invasions, and wears the scars of its history. Besides a shooting lodge, it has step wells, cenotaphs, temples, and the Bassi Wildlife Sanctuary to offer as attractions. Sculpture and woodcraft of Bassi are also very famous.
Bassi is just 25 km from the sprawling hilltop fort of Chittaurgarh. The uncompromising policy of death before submission followed by its Sisodia overlords ensured that its history is replete with tales of loyalty and terrible sacrifice.
