    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.

    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.

    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).

    Without a doubt the nicest stepwell in Bundi. Dating back to 1699, it is 46m deep and has beautifully carved pillars and a high arched gate. Lots of carved elephants. Not many people there during our visit and there are some safety issues (slippery, broken tiles and no railing). Unlike other stepwells, this one is reasonably well maintained.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice place to visit. There were not many tourists when we visited so it was more pleasant. It is not as crowded as other many forts in Rjasthan. Bundi itself is a peaceful city though.

    This Mahal is in the Garh Palace inside the Taragarh Fort. In fact, there are two palaces and this one is on the upper storey. Both were used by Queens of Bundi state (Harem). The palace room is locked but can be accessed by asking the man on duty to open it. A small one room Mahal, this houses exquisite paintings. On the ceiling, there are paintings of ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu of Indian Mythology. Some of the wall paintings have Mongolian influence. A couple of paintings are erotic in nature which your guide would tell. Do visit if you are inside the Garh Palace.

    A small summer palace for the local ruler and got some exposure because Rudyard Kipling spent a couple of days there writing Kim. In the upstairs gallery there are some black/white photographs of Kipling and underneath a small museum.
    Only if you've run out of better things to do.
