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 !!!

A little far away from Ajmer station is this Maharana pratap fort now renamed as taragarh, but good place to see. some portion of it is now occupied by Electric house. but still you can see a lot of it. you can see entire ajmer from the fort.

would not recommend wasting time to go there. We drove all the way, but were told that there is only a Dargah there and nothing more of the old fort. There is a Maharana Pratap Memorial on the way that can be visited

Wonder around at your free will. It doesn't feel that safe, it probably isn't all that safe but as a change to being ferried through a tour of fort after fort, having the freedom to explore one in a state of delapidation was thrilling. The monkeys now live here, so abide by their rules, don't approach them, tease them, etc.... More

First of all...I've been in India for months now and in Rajasthan for 4 weeks. Visited all the forts and palaces in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur. Was looking forward to being in Bundi. Unfortunately I'm very disappointed with the state of abandonment of the town and its monuments. The fort is now the residence of hundreds of very aggressive monkeys.... More
