The "chitra shala" has an excellent in situ collection of Bundi paintings done in the typical miniature style. They depict so many aspects of the life of the royalty of those times.

Inside the taragarh fort is this beautiful chitrashala which has well kept turquoise paintings, perfect backdrop for a perfect photo click. One needs to get the ticket (Rs.80 Indians) from the fort entrance and climb around 500 mtrs to reach this place.
