The main tourist attraction in Bundi is the Palace and Fort. Bundi Palace is a masterpiece, a hidden gem in this small town of Bundi, about 50 kms away from Kota in Rajasthan. Built in 1345, Taragarh is one of the most impressive structures in Bundi. While it may be a bit ramshackle and strewn with overgrown vegetation, the palace grounds are a great place for a leisurely stroll.

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. The Taragarh Fort crowns the crest of a steep hill overlooking the town, while the Garh Palace spills picturesquely down the hillside. This palace is Bundi’s — and Rajasthan’s — jewel.
