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

The ruins of Taragarh were both unnerving & thrilling to explore. You are given free range of the complex & can go wherever you are able to reach through the over grown brush. It is very quiet. I had no problems with the monkeys on the uphill hike to the main entrance although I did jump a mile every time... More

Stiff climb up to the very top, but spectacular inside and out when you get there, lots of original wall paintings in very good condition. Oh, and then there's the bats!!!!!

The palace at Taragarh Fort is one of the most outstanding things I have seen in India. Despite decades of neglect - the owner (evidently a parliamentarian) should be ashamed of not taking more care of it - it was absolutely stunning. The gracious courtyards and rooms were amazing and the stunning frescoes provide a glimpse of royal lives past.... More

There is no two ways about it, it is almighty climb up to the top! You are going to need the 10 rupee stick you can hire at the bottom not so much for the monkeys, we were not really bothered by monkeys, but to help with the climb! A bit like all hill climbing, every time you think you... More

Of all the places we have been visiting in our 3 month trip in india, this was the worthless and relatively most expensive attraction. After climbing for a while we found an abandoned and solitary place, nothing to see but the landscape. If you like monkeys you will see a bunch of them, take your stick to keep them away.... More

Yes the fort is not as beautiful and grand as other forts in Radjasthan but it has its own charme. It is a steep climbe but you can rent a bamboo stick just outside the gate. It helps you with the climbing and also use it to chase away the monkeys. (they did not trouble us). Just around the corner... More

Had an awesome awesome time exploring this with my love. Not many tourists, and it just felt like we had the whole fort all to ourselves. Had a great time, and Bundi was amazing.
