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.

BUNDI is a tourists dream come true. No state of art facilities. Virtually a heritage paradise boasting of Rudyard Kiplings' abode to Pre historic paintings. Do contact the unlettered , but a fantastic guide-cum-discoverer Mr. Om Prakash Sharma better known as KUKKIS WORLD. A WALKING ENCYCLOPAEDIA ON BUNDI. These awe-inspiring wall paintings in the palace atop a steep hillock are... More

The paintings mostly in blue, white and green (Heard the colors were made from grounding precious stones...amazing) are mesmerizing, with extensive attention to detail... Only grouse is it could be... More

The gardens and the room are nice and quite well maintained, specially the painting of Krishna stealing the clothes of the maids. It is definitely worth visiting
