About Bundi

The state of Bundi was founded in 1341 by Rao Deva of the 'fire-born' Hada Chauhan Rajput clan. It is of particular architectural note for its ornate forts, palaces, and stepwell reservoirs known as baoris. First destination is Hadoti set in a narrow inclining gorge. The palaces and forts have a fairy tale quality about them. Bundi is classic example of a fortress town bounded on all sides by hills. A substantial wall with four gateways encircles the city. Bundi is often described as the undiscovered jewel of Rajasthan. Surrounded on three sides by the rugged thickly forested Aravalli Hills, this walled town has retained much of its historic character. In ancient times, the area around Bundi was apparently inhabited by various local tribes. Bundi and the eponymous princely state are said to derive their names from a former Meena tribe man called Bunda Meena. Rajput architecture shines in the intricately carved brackets and pillars. Isolated and independent, this picturesque location has much to offer. It is famous for its intricate paintings and murals.

Taragarh Forts

s Taragarh Fort or 'Star Fort' is the most impressive structures of city of Bundi. It is a rather ramshackle fort with its overgrown vegetation. It was constructed in AD 1354 upon a steep hillside. The Taragarh Fort crowns the crest of a steep hill overlooking the town. The palace is entered through the imposing Hathia Pol ("Elephant Gateway"), flanked by two towers and topped by a pair of huge painted elephants. The most spectacular parts of the palace are the Chattar Mahal (built in 1660), and the Chitrashala, an arcaded gallery (built between 1748 and 1770) overlooking a hanging garden. This fort bestows a choice of serene stroll round its property. The quick eye-catchers comprise the Bhim Burj, a huge fortification with a field gun rested on it and a huge reservoir that is engraved out of a single piece of rock.
