The fort has been allowed to fall into ruins, and is overtaken by vegetation and monkeys. Very atmospheric to just wander around. You can hire a stick, or a guide with a stick, to scare off the monkeys!

This sits high above Bundi and you will need a decent pair of legs for the climb up to it and around the place. Its well worth it and you are more than likely to be one of a few visitors as Bundi is off the main tourist routes thank goodness. You will get more out of it if you... More

The fort is reached by a fairly steep climb further up from the palace. On the afternoon we visited we were the only ones up there. We were accompanied by Jaysingh who works at the palace. Jaysingh was friendly, helpful and easily able to navigate the route and keep the very large monkeys at arms length. Jaysingh was able to... More

Went up to the Fort our second morning in Bundi. We arranged for our tour guide Billou (whom we had met at the Palace the day before) to give us a tour of the Fort. So glad we had him as I don't know we would have found all of the crevices/passageways without him. We didn't worry about macaques (maybe... More

I've been going around Rajasthan for a few weeks now and taking in a lot of forts, so when a fellow traveller stated so perfectly that I have 'Fort Fatigue' I realised how true it was.. However, when I visited Taragarh Fort it was like a breath of fresh air. Firstly, the place is empty, I saw 1 tourist and... More

Tarangarh was one of the most beautiful places we went to in Rajastan. Come in the evening when the sun goes down and try to get Jessingh as your guide. You will find him at the entrance of the Garh Palace (otherwise just ask for him). He showed us hidden places like the terrific swimming pools of the fort and... More

It takes about 30 minutes to hike up to the Fort. The way does not have nice views and is not really suitable for sandals. Once up in the castle there is not much left and is becoming a jungle already (with monkeys). The paintings in the rooms are almost gone and the walls are coming down, so we weren't... More

What struck me most about this fort was the location and the reflections provided by Naval sagar. The fort is beautiful and has lovely paintings but need some maintenance. The monkeys on the way to the top of the fort sometimes are ready to charge.. beware !!!
