.chsrc Versus .login

All, I am trying to understand the difference between .login & .cshrc. My understanding here is, there is not much difference between .cshrc and .login. Both the files accomplish the same purpose. But the calling order is different. The .login file called only when you login after calling .cshrc file. I do see only this difference. Plesae correct me if i am wrong.

.cshrc is only used by csh.
