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.

This palace is a real highlight of Bundi. I would strongly recommend taking a guide so you can get full value out of it. Whatever you do, DON'T miss the upper levels with a large green garden, beautiful paintings and the most amazing view over Bundi. The entrance to the upper levels didn't seem easy to find, and perhaps they're... More

A very fine Palace, neglected, and slowly dying. Only part of it is accessible. Beautiful paintings in the Chitrasala & a fine Garden are the highlights. Beware of beehives and Bats.

Bundi is still a little bit off the tourist map, and I'm not sure why. This palace is a glimpse into the royal life of India. Sadly, it needs desperate repair and it's sad to see such a precious place crumbling. The road from the palace leads into the old town which is a wonder to explore.
