The walls of the palace are adorned with gorgeous paintings. Exquisite details and real gold paint. Paintings follow the Mewar Style, Hadoti Style, Marwar Style etc. Having portrayed different themes from Ramayana, Krishna Leela, Ragmala series and Gita Govinda, representing the hills, valleys, gardens, palaces, court scenes, deserts and religious processions. A must visit. Give atleast 4 hours. If you... More

This sprawling set of buildings clings onto the hillside. You enter via a gate with carved elephant statues into a courtyard. It is slowly decaying away but it is magnificent. Like people have already said the art work is stunning. All I kept thinking of was I'd entered Gormenghast from the Titus Groan books. Well worth a visit

Somewhere in eastern Rajasthan close to the city of Kota and the tourist trap that Chittorgarh often is lies the relatively less travelled Bundi. Not unlike Gokarna or Hampi, Indians have needed a few Westerners looking for that undefinable something that is usually called atmosphere to show us the worthiness of this place. Their imprints still show up here in... More

We spent one day in Bundi to cut the road between Pushkar and Udaipur, and it was totally worth the small detour !!! We were practically alone in the palace, so it really felt authentic. Most of the palace is so rotten and decrepit that is is closed to the public - unfortunately it doesnt seem to be undergoing restoration... More

Very charming place, far away from crowd. Painting are very facinating. Good guide by the entrance. Plan at least few hours for the visit. Good restaurants nearby with beautiful view.

Visited Bundi from Kota. The fort is vast. Lots of opportunities to take good photos. Kids had a lot of fun.

Few tourist venture here- which is exactly why you should- I'd read about this palace (inside the fort) over two decades ago and had made it a goal of my trip- I was not disappointed in the least- such lovely art- all yours to see without being hassled by crowds or hucksters ...We hired a guide (Jogie) who was kind,...

The jewellery shop in the palace is full of fakes. I bought a couple of pieces from the jewellery shop, and have later found out both are extremely fake. Avoid this shop!!! The palace and fort are definitely worth it though. Very beautiful and there is something magic about the fact it is not kept as well as other places.

From all the castle we visited in Rajasthan (and we visited a loooot of them) this is the one I liked the most. It is also the one in the worst condition, which is a pitty but seems to keep the tourist masses of Jaipur, Udaipur etc. away. This way you can enjoy the old buildings and the really amazing...
