(240 reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • At first glance surprising visit to a dilapidated Palace, on reflection, but oh so beautiful. Beautiful paintings and drawings that are particularly well preserved. Wander through the rooms and hallways is a party. Our guide through 3959 Miles Experience was great. Detours worth this Palace!

  • The palace has so much potential to be grandiose, but unfortunately it is not well maintained and tourists can only see about 30% of it. The rest is closed, with lots of bats, bees, etc. There are fas...  more »
  • Old palace-fortress overlooking the town, now no longer inhabited by descendants of the last reigning Raja. Badly preserved and now partially in ruins. Perhaps this is even more fascinating. Very interesting the ancient frescoes in the older parts of the building.

  • 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
