Huge and beautiful palace with some of the most impressive wall paintings, carvings and mosaics I have ever seen in India. What a surprise! It is very run down in places, like the rest of Bundi seems to be neglected. But well worth the money. I went 3 times!

This place is worthy to visit as you may be the only tourists there if you go early and found yourself as a Maharaja. With great views of Bundi's city

Looks impressive from the outside from afar, and I'd advise just to admire it that way rather than paying to enter. Good views of Bundi from it and pretty gateway (Hathi Pol) but otherwise the palace itself was absolutely nothing special and very poorly maintained. Just a bunch of rooms with rubbish piled in them. If you really want to... More

We were blown away by the beautiful paintings in the upper levels of this palace - just a little higher than the peaceful gardens shown in this picture, beautiful frescoes with intricate details which made the climb up to the palace well worth the effort

This is really a must see in Bundi. We felt like we were on the movie set to Indiana Jones or the Jungle Book. There was hardly any other people there which added to the enchantment. Explore at you're own pleasure. So much fun seeing this historic and beautiful building!

This is a beautiful fort sitting above Bundi that you may be lucky enough to enjoy alone. A rare place of peace and quiet that is little frequented. A hidden gem of India and well Worth the trip. Make the effort to head on up to tarragargh as well as That place is awesome. And find Jay Singh as he... More

We loved this place. It was relaxed and not crowded. Normally we avoid guides but at this place it's worth it. They have a thorough understanding of the place. And the keys. We got a guide called Habib - he was very good. Didn't rush us through. Good english skills plus, he's studying history so seems to really appreciate what... More

It is a place where you can feel in very corner the history of the city. It is not overrestaurated what we liked.

Once you get past the smell of bats, the Garh Palace is well worth a visit. The paintings within the palace are stunning, in true Bundi style. A mix of fort, palace life, garden, and animal scenes against a stunning blue/turquoise setting. The palace guide is lovely and very knowledgeable.
