Garh Palace, Bundi

3.9
Absorb royal history at Garh Palace, an ornate fortified structure filled with artifacts and information regarding the kingly rulers who used to reside here. Established sometime in the late 13th century, the complex gradually expanded with each new ruler, yielding exquisite courtyards, gates, and temples. Look for the Sailar Ghazi Darwaza, which displays tasteful ornamentation typical of the sultanates of Delhi and Mandu, as well as a mortarless gate constructed of interlocking layers of sandstone. Visit the palace museum to see a wide range of artifacts, from famed magical realist miniature paintings of the area, to royal regalia and instruments of scientific and religious purpose. Bring along your camera to capture the imposing historical architecture on display at every turn. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Bundi trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This former palace in bad shape is very interesting to visit: very few attended, signaling almost absent, one has the impression of visiting an abandoned place. It exudes a lot of charm. Exceptional paintings in several parts.

  • Kipling did was not wrong in saying that it was one of the most beautiful palaces in this part of the India. After 60 years of neglect, the place is very damaged, but many murals are just exceptional. Ask the best guide, '' Billu' to the + 9929135081. It will show you the exceptional rooms!

  • Bundi is worth a visit. At first glance this fortress seems abandoned but in the end we discover a magical place with superb paintings. The last owner maradjha died in 2010 without direct successor, he was not married and had no children. Now his potential successors are in court with the State to decide who will be the next owner, and everyone hopes that this judgment will happen soon to begin a restoration in order to keep this gem. Unesco also expects this decision to offer its services.

  • Great historical place. But no such government development is not there for tourist attractions. Foreigners are enthusiastic to visit this place. Because of poor infra we are loosing foreign income and exposure of Indian culture Very very pooooor maintenance by Government.
  • Ask the guide to show some paintings which are usually on walls and the doors are locked. Very artistically pleasing.
  • The palace is very historic place I never see it before. But the maintenance is very poor. The place very good for photography. But I telling frankly the palace of bad smell. Hi friends but it is place we definitely visit in our Rajasthan tour. Hope you review helpful to you.
  • It can be too good if it have some proper management of it it could be awesome place
  • The owner of the small restaurant near the entrance is very friendly.And the hand made paintings of this shop are awsome..
