    This is a treasure trove of Bundi miniature art paintings. The place has been ruined and plunderedbecuase of lack of interests by the decendants of the royal family of Bundi post independence. Now the palace has been leased out to a private operator and there are a lot of positive changes

    Winters is the best to explore. But with a caution that you must have a love for the forts and history.

    If you love Indian History, a must place to visit. Beautiful fort, place and people. But just go with a full stomach, its too much to explore in 2/3 hrs.

    Too much to walk, so be with a good pair of shoes, and especially a history teller (GUIDE) who is available at the ticket counter.

    Stunning view of Bundi and culture.

    Geet is a friendly, creative and genuine person & a talented silversmith. We met him on the first day and he seemed so lovely, I decided to do a silversmithing class with him to make a ring. Wish I had more time to stay longer and learn more with him! He his a great and patient teacher and the result is just amazing! I had an idea in mind and he made it possible! Nice creative process and an experience to remember. Plus, I just love my silver ring so much! I also bought some beautiful miniature paintings on vintage postcards for nice souvenirs. I highly recommend! Thanks Geet! Hopefully see you another time for more creating together!

    Visiting once may not be enough. Stunning but slowly fading. Hope it's fully restored to awe generations to come. What it must've been at its grandest is what you might wonder.

    A couple of Kilometers from the Taragarh Fort, this Baori or Stepped Well was built by Queen of King Aniruddha of Bundi, Rani Nathavati, mainly for the public to be used for drinking water. Probably it is the only Baori in India (Not Sure) that has access from three sides. Combined ticket can be bought along with Sukh Mahal and Churasi Khambo ki Chhatri for Rs 75. The Baori has been built with exquisite stone carvings on the walls and it has some influence of Jain architecture also on the arched gate. A place worth a visit in Bundi.

    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.

    Not very far from Raniji ki Baori which a stepped well, this is a Kund (Large Square Well). There are steps on all sides of the Kund that go deep below. It is a very impressive structure if one sees it when there is less or no water. You will see lots of stairs going down below. Probably it was built by Dhai (Servant) of the king and thats why its name. No entry fee but maintenance is very poor. Nevertheless, do visit if you are in Bundi.

    Not exactly a Mahal, this was more of a Rest House for the British guests of Bundi. There is a combined ticket of Rs 75 for it along with Raniji ki Baori and one more. It is built near Jait Sagar lake and the view is absolutely mesmerising. There are only two rooms at the first floor. It was one of these rooms where Rudyard Kipling stayed in 1901 and probably that is why this place is also called Kipling Palace. The small room now has many memories of Rudyard Kipling. Our guide made us close our eyes as we climbed up to the first floor and made us stand at a place.Then he asked us to open our eyes, and WOW!! what vista it presented before our eyes. A lake with lotus leaves all around, surrounded by hills from all side. That was breathtaking. Do visit this palace to enjoy the nature’s bounty to Bundi.

    This beautiful lake is just near to the Sukh Mahal and is surrounded by hills from all sides. It provides an amazing view when seen from Sukh Mahal with lotus leaves floating everywhere in the lake. The road along the lake takes a slight circular path and our guide told us that there was a plan to develop this road just like Marine drive in Mumbai by the Oberoi group along with a hotel near the lake. But that plan could not fructify. In fact, one can see the unfinished foundation of the proposed hotel near the road.

    Take a combined ticket that costs Rs 75 for Indians and covers three places i.e. "Raniji ki Baori", "Sukh Mahal" and this place. If you have a student ID then it is only Rs 5 so do take one if you have to save on some money. Student discount is also for foreigners. This place is a good piece of architecture and if you count the pillars, you can count only 80. The rest 4 pillars are actually on the corners of the platform on which Shivlinga is placed. That makes it 84. It is actually a small open temple and you have to take off your shoes to enter. Do not forget to get the story behind its construction from the guide. That way, you will connect with the structure much more meaningfully. A reference to the story is also mentioned on the stone plaque at the gate. The small garden inside is not well maintained but overall, the place along with its interesting story is worth a visit.

    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.

    Yug made us an amazing travel comic of our trip (not just in India). He did a fantastic job creating a great memento of our travels, and something we’ll always treasure. Thank you Yug!

    We had one day to see the stepwells of Bundi.
    Ashwiniji( Bunty) was an awesome guide.
    He knows every step well, the history behind it and every other guy on the road! He is very easy going and genuine guy and has a great sense of humour. The services are also very reasonable and he showed us 30 plus wells, a lot more than what we had found on the net.
    I would highly recommend him to any traveller to bundi!
    5 plus stars!!
