    Overgrown and amazing
    Construction on the fort began in the 1340's. In its day it must have been amazing, now it is a ghost of it former splendour. It is definitely with the walk to the top of the hill to explore. It is large and has spectacular views all around. Then you can walk back down and have a look at Garh Palace

    Mainly view
    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.

    An highlight of Rajasthan off the beaten path
    A highlight of our tour of Rajasthan! An impressive and unique fort with views of the city and surrounding valley. Some reviews have complained that it is overgrown, but these complaints are overblown, and if anything only adds to the ancient feeling of the place, like you've stumbled upon an ancient ruin somehow preserved. Go with a guide - you don't want to miss the paintings, but you need someone to explain the interesting stories behind them. Well worth visiting, the fort was every bit as interesting as some of the more famous sites like the Amer Fort, and the town of Bundi is a friendly place that's a welcome break from the hustle of the big cities, with fewer tourists and hawkers

Amazing place!! Got to see old architecture surrounded by greenery. Each stone is carved so beautifully. I could have just stayed there forever. Will visit again someday.

This is a typical Rajasthan fortified palace. Probably you are best having a guide as the place is a bit of a rabbit warren and needs some explaining.
Don't miss the wall paintings towards to top of the palace as these are very fine examples and look in need of some expert preservation - at least there are grills installed to keep the monkeys out.
Views out across the town are well worth the climb.

A majestic fort / palace of Ummed Singh of Rajasthan.
The garden at upper side of fort is truly mesmerizing.
Take care of slippery and steep way while entering into fort and picture gallery. You can purchase a stick for your comfort.

I had lovely experience in Taragarh Fort in Bundi. I travelled to the place with my late father, mother, wife and elder son. I loved the brilliant structure of the Fort and the Poles. I loved the ambience.

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.

We hired a random guide and went alllll the way up to the top. Looking back, we should have bailed, since hubby's knee was painful for MONTHS afterward
