Garh Palace, Bundi

(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Garh Palace and other attractions in Bundi, use our Bundi vacation generator.

  • Enormously the Palace above the small village perched – the relations do not fit together somehow. Here, we have taken a less other visitors during 2 hours tour in Jodhpur, Bikaner or Jaiselmer in about 5 minutes. The system is not great restored, acts but as more authentic than the cleaned out palaces and forts eg Udeipur or Bikaner. The fine murals may be seen allegedly not officially are worth a visit. But probably each visitor enjoy comes against a small tip - otherwise Yes the special guardian would not be there, which then closes up.

  • Palace in two parts, living quarters and a fresco gallery, both very much worth seeing, preferably with a guide, and an easy walk. Stunning art and crumbling elegance, superb photo opps.  more »
  • It is a steep walk up slightly slippery cobbled road. A combined Entrance to the Garh Palace & Fort Rs500 - not worth it. We walked up to the the very tired old & somewhat dirty palace then climbed up...  more »

  • A 13th century's historical monument and a beautiful heritage built in Bundi having a fine Rajputana style architecture.
  • As we entered the fort, there was nothing appreciable & majestic other than the first look from the main NH-12 which looks deceptive. The fort had not been maintained well by the government by any means. The galleries stinks of bats’ faeces & the drainage facilities in the galleries had not been provisioned. The visit to this fort was disappointing. However, the famous taragarh fort above is believed to be quite well maintained & known to many. But, unluckily, we had no time & even the fort visit timings were over by the time we reached there. I hope to see the famous taragarh fort & many more places in coming future.
  • Should be renamed ugly palace. Costly visite without any interest. Full of bats and smell very very bad.
  • Vry nic place
  • Nice taragarh place
