This ruinous palace makes a dramatic and extravagant backdrop behind and over the simple little town of Bundi, but climb up through deserted courtyards and bat infested galleries to discover hidden art. Beautiful wall paintings, some Chinese dating back hundreds of years adorn walls and ceilings of old royal apartments. Well worth the effort.

A beautiful piece of Indian history made of walls full of amazing handmade paintings drawn using natural colors some 400 years ago. Each painting depicts and interesting scene from those forgotten times.

This palace, also known as Ummed Mahal, built circa 1750 AD, is inside the Bundi Fort(Taragarh Fort) and is under Archaeological Survey of India. The entry is free. This is actually a repository of Bundi style of painting. Abundant use of blue and green colour and the subject matter of paintings are from Hindu Mythology, Day to Day Royal Life, War and Fights and also Love and Romance. There is a special painting just near the entrance that has two animals with one mouth. The guide will explain each painting in detail. Also, mirrors have been placed in this palace that were imported from Belgium. The paintings on the ceiling are mesmerizing and have been drawn in great detail. This is a great heritage of Bundi but sadly, the maintenance is very poor. The wall paintings are not being maintained properly and tourists many times even touch them, a sure way to loose them with time. A must visit if you want to connect with Art forms of Bundi.

This part of the palace has many beautiful paintings which have survived remarkably well over 400 years. The garden is pretty It is well worth the walk up the hill

Chirashala, a part of Bundi fort palace, is house to many beautiful pantings done on the pillars and walls of the big hall. These paintings are such a feast to the eyes and speak volumes about the rich art and culture Bundi have had. The garden outside the shala is so Serene and quite, you might as well have a little "me moment" with yourself.
