Holidays in RajasthanBundi


Surrounded by Aravalli hills on three sides and circumscribed by a massive wall with four gateways is the city of Bundi that is known for having a glorious past and a promising future. Historical monuments, natural beauty, scenic dams & ponds, wild forests fairs and festivity are what symbolize life at this colorful city of Rajasthan. The city of Bundi has interesting monuments including impressive medieval forts, palaces, havelis, temples with beautiful stone idols and 'chattris' with carved pillars, along with a quaint lake in the heart of the town, adding to its charm. Bundi is also famous for its intricate carvings and frescoes.

In the year 1193, when Sultan Mohammed Ghauri defeated Prithvi Raj Chauhan, some members of the Chauhan clan took shelter in Mewar and became allies to the Rana there while the younger ones moved to the Chambal valley and fought with Meena and Bhil tribals to establish their kingdom of Hadoti. The city of Bundi was then a part of the kingdom of Kota and was ruled by Hada Chauhans who were the descendants of the famous Chauhan dynasty. Later the two clans of Hada Chauhans formed two separate states at Kota and Bundi, on either sides of the river Chambal.

Tourist Attractions in Bundi
Taragarh Fort :
Taragarh Fort Bundi, RajasthanBuilt in the 14th century, the Taragarh Fort is the star attraction in Bundi. With the entry being free and souvenir shops fortunately absent, the fort provides an option of peaceful ramble round its premises. Inside the instant eye-catchers include the Bhim Burj, a large battlement with a cannon placed on it and a large reservoir carved out of single piece of rock. The views from the fort are exceptional, specially during the sunset when the rays seems to lend a lovely grace to the entire area.

Sukh Mahal :
Sukh Mahal Bundi, RajasthanThe palace was constructed during the reigns of Umed Singh on the banks of Sukh Sagar or the Jait Sagar. The palace was meant for providing the princes a free hand to do what they liked away from the supervision of the Rao. The highlight of the palace is the white marble chhatri that stands in the centre of the roof of the second storey. The palace, that serves as the Irrigation Rest House today, holds the honour of playing host to the famous writer, Rudyard Kipling.

84 Pillared Cenotaphs :
The Chaurasi Khambon ki Chhatri is located south of the town and is a pavilion supported by 84 pillars. The pavilion was constructed in the year 1683 by Rao Anirudh Singh to honour the services of Deva, his wet nurse. The two storeyed structure serves as a cenotaph as well as a temple though the importance of the cenotaph seems to have deteriorated with the passage of time. On the other hand the temple with Shiva Linga still commands respect from the devotees. The ceilings on both the floors are decorated with paintings of Rajput battles and fish symbols.

Bundi Palace:
Bundi Fort, RajasthanAdjacent to the fort and past the bazaar, a wooden gate leads to the beautiful Bundi Palace. The highlight of this palace is the beautiful murals that carry the spectators back into the time of Bundi royalty. The murals cover almost entire palace walls, however, all these areas are not open for public viewing barring the Chitrashala. For visiting other areas, special permission needs to be obtained from the secretary of the Maharaja of Bundi. Photography is not allowed otherwise Bundi palace, illuminated with lights during night, presents a glowing beauty to be captured on camera.
