Just above Bundi Palace this smaller palace has stunning murals that are breath taking in their vividness of colour. Like Bundi Palace this place is owned privately which probably accounts for its less renavated state. This gives it a particular charm.

After your visit to the Bundi Palace, don't forget to visit this lovely little palace above the garden courtyard. The paintings are exquisite though badly preserved.

In an otherwise falling palace, this place is the one that stands well, literally. The paintings are lovely, and is better understood with a guide.

Bundi and Kishangarh are famous in Rajasthan for distinct style of painting. If you are into painting or an art critique you must visit this place. This small palace is full of wall paintings of Bundi style. There is hardly any wall or part of wall which has no painting. Birds, animals, gardens and religious figures have been depicted in...

This was one of the highlights of our trip in Rajasthan. We stopped at Bundi as we it was on the way from Jaipur to Udaipur. We did not regret it. Bundi is much smaller than all the other Rajasthan tourist attractions, its a lot less visited but its an absolute gem. Make sure you invest the £3 to get... More

The garden is very beautiful and the paintings are well preserved. Nicer than the palace next door and free for some reason.

this is worth the climb, look out for the guy with a limp who has the keys for the closed rooms and will show you the painting in these rooms

Lovely palace with lots of potential, as it is full of wonderful frescoes, but it is sadly neglected, and only a small part of the palace is open to visitors, as the rest is in such a state.
