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.

  • 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..
  • This is an historic place and very nicely maintained by the government of India. Great tourist attractions can be seen here. From this fort one can see whole glimpse of the Bundi.
  • Pretty nice and worth the 500 Rupees entrance fee, although it is definitely overpriced. You might want to take a club at the start to the fort (some sticks are after the palace) because it gives you a better feeling, even if the monkeys are harmless. Great views to Bundi and the Lotus Lake. Don't use Flipflops because the needles go through them (10X in our case..).
  • Good place for photography,, and to explore the beauty of RAJASTHAN U can sweet the blue city from the top of this place and,, feel the moment of a beautiful city Inn the middle of two peaks
  • Good,The fort is a popular tourist viewpoint of the city below. The fort contains tanks which never dry up in ancient time but technique with which they were built has been lost but the tanks survive prof of the advanced methods of construction and engineering .This palace is noted for the lavish colourful Rajput paintings and murals .The painting in golden coloured also.We can reach Bundi by train and Kota by air and timing is 08.00 to 17.00.For cleaning it is not better.
