    We visited with Kukki Senior, like his son, Kukki Junior, a truly excellent guide. The visit took us off the beaten track into lovely countryside, the paintings, discovered by Kukki Senior, were fascinating and on the way home he introduced us to his friends on a farm and in a village, all of whom were very friendly and welcoming

    The Taragarh Fort is the oldest fort in Rajasthan and is build on a hill overlooking Bundi. It is now seriously overgrown, hard to walk up to and has lots of monkeys. The greenish tint of the stones shows that they used serpentine instead of sandstone to build it. It is a pity it is not better preserved.

    Garh palace is the dominant feature of Bundi. As often, it is not just 1 palace, but rather a complex of many structures build over a long period, and located at the base of Taragarh fort. There is a parking down the bottom and it is a bit of a slippery, steep walk up. Some sections are open and in a fairly good condition, but I was stopped from going passed the beautiful Hathia Pol (they even tried to stop me from taking photographs of the gate !?). No reason was given and I learned afterwards that there are some exquisite paintings there . . .
    India is not a rich country and there are unnumerable monuments to be maintained and restored. It is obvious there are simply not enough funds to brings this gem back to its former glory. Pity.

    Chitrashala, or Ummed Mahal is a part of Garh Palace and it is probably in the best condition. Deservedly so, because it contains the famous painting room. All its walls and ceilings are covered in fabulous frescoes, illustrating court scenes or images out of Krishna's life in brilliant blue and green. They are in remarkably good state, but totally exposed, so I fear for their safety and protection.
    The royal family still owns the fort and they open only a small part for public viewing. If you know in advance, you can arrange a visit to other parts, including Hathia Pol and the Bada Mahal (where rare Mongol/Asian paintings can be seen).

    Gopal is a truly wonderful artist. He is a beautiful soul that shines through his art. I bought several works from him and look at them everyday. I bought them years ago in 2017 and only just now found this way to make a review. Gopal you had lovely long hair then!

    A beautiful stepwell within the crowded city with superb carvings on its pillars and a high arched gate. Its having very ornate and exquisitely carved Toran Gate, sculptures of Gods and Goddesses along with murals which add beauty and grandeur to the stepwell.

    We were taken to this step well by our G Adventure tour guide. Incredible gasping scene when your eyes first fall on it. Well worth the visit.

    On a long rainy day, we stumbled across this small, quaint jewelers on a street in Bundi. The shop is owned by the nicest guy in India, Manish, who (after making us a cup of tea) explained to us all about the Stones he had and that he can custom make any jewelry you want. I went in with no expectations and came out having co designed a beautiful bangle based on my birth stones. As a thank you, Manish then, incredibly, invited us to have dinner with his family that night. Making this one of the most special experiences we had in India.

    Dhabhai Kund, together with Ranji ki Baori, is the best stepwell in Bundi. Bundi is not exactly a main tourist priority, so even here maintenance and conservation could be a lot better. The omnipresent pigeons leave their droppings all over the place and the water is green and polluted. That is a pity, because it is a grand structure and should be cared for.

    A lake in the heart of Bundi city that adds to the beauty of the landscape when viewed from Taragarh Fort. The lake is dedicated to Lord Varuna (Hindu Water God). There is a temple in the middle of the lake that was half submerged when we visited. We had a mesmerising view of the lake from the Fort. Near the lake, there is also a palace where the kings of Bundi shifted from the main palace after 1947 when Indian got free (Probably, it was difficult to maintain such a big palace in the Fort with all the powers to collect and raise revenue were gone so the kings decided to shift to a smaller palace). Nawal Sagar is surely a gem in the beauty of Bundi and a treat to your eyes.

    In 1683 the Maharaja of Bundi had some spare money and wanted a long-lasting memory for his nurse. So he built this pretty 84-Pillared Cenotaph in her honor. All in white marble, it holds four chattri placed on the 4 corners, a large Shiva Linga in the centre and really nice carvings around the base. All set in a nice little garden and worth an hour to take some pictures.
