Bundi Tourism & Travel Guide

The City of Rajputs, Bundi, maybe not as popular as other cities in Rajasthan, but nevertheless is no less captivating. The city is cloaked by hills on three sides and is home to a number of palaces and forts. It is believed to have got its name from a tribal head Bundi who called it ‘bunda ka nal’, which means narrow way. A monumental prodigy that has stood the test of time is the Garh Palace. The walls with contemporary paintings and manicured gardens make the palace or fort a spectacle in itself. The many stepwells or baoris inside display the strong engineering skills from centuries ago. The riveting wells go very deep and are considered to the primary form of harvesting rainwater. Raniji ki Baori is one of them with elegant tall pillars and beautiful carvings. The Taragarh Fort or the Star Fort is a colossal that has been stunning people with its architecture since the ancient past. Alongside the fort is the Bundi Palace that houses the many murals and frescoes. Hadoti Palace or Nawal Sagar Palace are perfect if you want a royal stay at Bundi. Neither are the streets of Bundi as choked as the other cities nor are the attractions crowded with tourists, making it just the quaint town you want for a relaxing trip. Namaste Cafe, Lakha and Kipling Cafe promise delectable meals to satiate your palate.
Best time to visit Bundi is from October to March

Top Places To Visit in Bundi 36 Spots

Nagpahari Hill, Bundi
=> After visiting the palace hike up through the steep stone-paved path leading to Taragarh Fort. It's the most impressive and massive structure in Bundi which is a great place to explore. But the place is not maintained at all and due to lack of security, it is not advisable to visit the place alone or in the late afternoon.

Rajasthan’s opulent capital is a magical land brimming with desert camps and lakeside palaces. Sitting on the edge of the Thar desert and surrounded by the Aravali hills, the Pink City boasts of hilltop forts, bustling bazaars and the best pyaaz kachoris you’ll ever taste. Among the places to visit in Jaipur city, the grandiose pink sandstone Palace of Winds, or Hawa Mahal, towering over the hustling streetscapes and the majestic City Palace are the ones attracting the most tourists. The 18th century old astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a UNESCO world heritage site and a major tourist attraction. Perched proudly on the top of a hill is Amber Fort, dating back to the 16th century. The red sandstone structure houses palaces, temples, gardens and a lake inside its premises. One of the most favoured things to do in Jaipur is to walk through the lively Bapu Bazaar, and come out with bags stocked with bandhani-printed sarees, lac bangles, meenakari trinkets and blue pottery. And while you’re at it, shop for some string puppets or kathputlis that make for some excellent souvenirs. Galtaji temple, also called the Monkey Temple, is another must visit in Jaipur city. If your eyes just can't get enough, visit Amber Fort, which has its own 600-year-old story to narrate, through its spectacular light and sound shows, cultural performances and folk music. Rajasthani tailored clothes, jewellery and handicrafts are a huge hit as souvenirs, for their exquisite mirror work, embroidery, leather and splashes of colour making up for most of Jaipur’s tourism. Some famous places this illustrious workmanship can be bought from are Rajasthali, Anokhi, Johari bazaar and Sireh Deori Bazaar, but remember to bargain. Central Museum and Albert Hall museum are great places to learn about Rajasthan's rich history and culture and also to buy handicrafts. The Jaipur Literature Festival, the world's largest free literature festival, is dear to almost every bibliophile around the globe. Here, enjoy literature and music, amidst the likes of William Dalrymple, Stephen Fry and many other renowned writers and personalities. The 5-day festival is hosted in Diggi Palace, which gives people around the world an insight into Rajasthan's captivating cultural heritage. For those interested in pampering their palates with the flavourful Rajasthani cuisine against the backdrop of a picturesque village should visit Chokhni Dani. For a regal experience, a stay at the Suvarna Mahal is a must visit.
