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.

  • It was very interesting to visit this palace, but the steep walk up and all of the stairs really whipped me. I understand that these structures require constant upkeep and are extremely expensive. Sad...  more »
  • It is a steep climb up but we were lucky to approach it through a hip wide stairwell and trap door climbing out into the gardens. The paintings are spectacular amazingly preserved and full of detail. ...  more »
  • This Palace towers above the town of Bundi, a lovely collection of blue painted houses also dominated by the old fort higher up the hill. We were taken there by our friend and guide Bhanwar Singh Hada...  more »

  • The fort and palace got built 700 years ago. That's impressive. But the way it has been maintained is not impressive at all. Some of the wall paintings are beautiful. That's the only attraction for people who understand that art form
  • We went there around 5pm and we were able to visit the palace without none around. To help us to visit all the rooms they opened secret passages only for us since the time was not enough to go through the standard way. We were not able to do the fort but we skipped it anyway. Allow more than 2 hours if you want to do both. Now the ticket is 500 rupies for both palace and fort, you cannot split anymore.
  • Very charming place of historical significances, maintained quite nicely by the Government of India. Used to be home for the Royal families in the ancient times, this place has some heritage rooms and decent restaurant too. However, the best thing about this wonderful place is the 360 degrees views of the sand dunes and the City of Jaisalmer. Truly gifted place for photographers.
  • Dirty place not well maintained nothing here every where bats and a bad smell and only place to see that is art room and it's garden and nothing else to seen here waste of money and time too much coast of tickets and nothing to see 😬😬😬😬😬😬😬😬 so bad experience. Three stars only for art room and it's garden
  • Its a nice place to visit but surprisingly indian citizens are not allowed to go after a certain point.. no matter u are agree to spent as much money as foreign guest are paying.. path is dirty.. need more maintenance..
