It was really refreshing to go to a sight and have such helpful and friendly staff looking after the place - compared to the stone faced stern guards around some sights. The paintings inside are beautiful but the whole visit was over quite quickly. You could do the palace and fort together or split it up if you have the... More

If going to fort or palace, take a stick as macaques can get a bit intrusive. Fort is one place where a guide is worth the cash (barter - he'll come down) - lots of bits you might miss and few signs.

The whole Bundi Fort is as untouched as you can imagine. A must see in every aspect. Take at least 3 hours and look closely to the wonderful wall paintings! We had very friendly guides who offered their service without asking but it was so good & funny that we've been more than happy to tip them.

During my short stint around the Bundi city in rajasthan dated 10.08.12 & after exploring the waterfall at Bhimlat & Dooleshwar Mahadev temple, we decided to return as the day was also about to come at its end. While on our way back, we tried to make optimum use of our time & hence, we all decided to visit the... More

It is difficult to say whether this monument is very Good or Average? As far as maintenance is concerned it is average but as far as its past glory and monumental value is concerned it is very good. It is a complex of palaces. There is an entry ticket for the monument, though a little bit costly (Rs 50) looking... More

Do not miss !! Magical and mysterious. Ask to see the Maharani apartments. It's very worth the climb.

This is a palace of significant cultural heritage which is being allowed to deteriorate. The artwork is spectacular but often exposed to the elements ...which is contributing to its decline. The Indian population and travellers will all lose something very special if this is allowed to continue. Please....whoever is responsible for this heritage beauty...start restoring your treasure before it is... More

Best palace frescoes in India! Relatively few visitors come to visit this wonderful maze of floors, courtyards, narrow corridors and frescoed chambers.

The fresco art is superb and only marred by continuing deterioration due to the hostile environment and lack of remedial work and protection.

With little maintenance, this little palace is rundown but not without its charm. With beautiful wall paintings peeling off and the resident bats & monkeys, it's a delight to walk through and get a feel of the atmospheric past of Bundi.
