This is easily one of my favorite places to visit in Rajastan. The palace is now inhabited by bats, bees, and monkeys due to neglect, but its ruined beauty still shines through. We were one of the few visitors during that late April afternoon, and the palace feel like ours to explore. We were able to see the amazing faded... More

it was raining when we reached this place.Few parts of this Palace were really nice, like hand made paintings, garden and view of city from there.But some of the areas were too old and little dirty. The large structure of building is stunning. Better you hire a guide who can explain you the hidden history behind every wall. 1-2 Hours... More

Even you've seen lots of forts and palaces, the extensive and well preserved ( for 400 years old, that is) murals in the palace are special. There are rooms resplendent in colours, but what makes it especially interesting, if you have the time, is the variety of stories, themes and topics of the paintings. There are many detailing how the... More

It didn't help that it was raining. So many parts of it were in disrepair and we were not allowed into places where wonderful restoration of paintings is undergoing.

As others have said, the Bundi palace has seen better days and is mostly in disrepair. We did hire a guide, which is very much needed as some of the rooms are not all obvious to get to and he did point out many interesting things in the artwork. Also said to us, and warned some others, not to go... More

We LOVED Bundi. This is definitely a must see if you come this way. Amazing palace, built right into the side of the hills (the work of "goblins", so they say, because you can't imagine humans getting all of that stone up the hills!). We had the option of getting a tour guide when we paid our entrance fee- we... More

Some people seem to be reviewing the fort on this thread instead of the palace? They are right next to each other (the Palace is halfway up the hill, the Fort is on top of the hill). I would not advise people to see the palace, unless they are really in to their painting. In the Fort you can see... More

This is a really beautiful place. The paintings are fascinating-like others have said it's a pity they have not been better protected over the years as they are amazing. Bundi itself is a bit off the beaten track and we arrived during a festival which was an experience I'll not forget

Very charming place, far away from turist groups. Good guide by the entrance. Plan at least 3 hours for the visit. Good restaurants nearby with beautiful view.
