Bundi Map

Offering a great deal of panache and rustic charm, Bundi is worthy of exploration. Capital of a major princely state in the coursework of the prime of the Rajputs, although its importance dwindled with the expansion of nearby Kota in Mughal times, the walled town of Bundi kept its independence until its incorporation in to the state of Rajasthan in 1947.

Bundi’s Rajput legacy is preserved in the type of the large fortress which looms over the town in the narrow valley below it, coupled with a palace. The crumbling Taragarh or Star Fort was built in 1354 and is a top place to ramble about and explore. Inside are immense reservoirs carved out of solid rock and the Bhim Burj, the largest of the battlements, on top of which is mounted a cannon. The views from Taragarh are excellent.The turreted palace spills down the hillside beneath the fort. Here, are harboured Bundi’s greatest art treasures: its famous murals, available to view by local appointment.

A stroll through the elderly city allows to soak up the medieval atmosphere of Bundi. By all accounts, Rudyard Kipling, the famous writer drew inspiration from the town and it is surroundings.
