    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.

    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.

    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.

    Shikar Burj is an old hunting lodge for the Bundi rulers. Now totally in disuse, we were only able to take some photos from the outside. Picturesque, but really fairly pointless to make the drive out. Lots of monkeys though . . .

    This Mahal is in the Garh Palace inside the Taragarh Fort. In fact, there are two palaces and this one is on the lower storey, the upper one being Badal Mahal. Both were used by Queens of Bundi state (Harem). There are exquisite paintings on the walls and ceiling of the palace. One painting depicts British Army that is an indication that the palace must have been built after Britishers arrived in India. There is a perspective painting also. Do visit if you are inside the Garh Palace.
