Introduction of Bundi

The quaint rustic town of Bundi was once a capital of destination in Rajasthan. The monuments and their architectural glory reflect the past splendor of the Rajputs Chief who reigned in those times. Bundi fortunate to be located close to the river Chambal, and fringed by ravines, have attempted to create palaces around waterbodies, whether it is delicate pavilions set afloat amidst water in Bundi, or complete palaces such as Jal Mahal set upon lake-islands in Kotah. When in Bundi don't forget to visit the waterfalls on the Menal river. The falls lie on the Chittaur-Bundi road. The cavernous gorge down which the Menal river plunges is over 122 metres in depth and is the location of several Hindu shrines. Bundi is surrounded by the Aravalli hills on the three sides and is circumscribed by a massive wall with four gateways. Interesting monuments including impressive medieval forts, palaces, havelis, temples with beautiful stone idols and chattris with carved pillars, along with a picturesque lake in the heart of the town, add to its charm. Bound is very famous for its intricate carvings and murals.
