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.

  • First view of the palace, fort and lake spectacular not on the usual tourist route but go and you will be amazed the palace is a bit decayed but the paintings on the wall are amazing its not crowded s...  more »
  • The maintenance of the charming Palace is unfortunately neglected due to inheritance squabbles. A visit is worthwhile however. In particular, the frescoes have very fascinated us.

  • What beautiful Palace! Quiet, with very few tourists, to discover the sumptuous rooms in the walls and ceilings covered with paintings of the 17th and 18th century. It may ask to you open some rooms. Every time magical discovery! The last room at the top of the hanging garden is a gem.

  • 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.
  • 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..).
  • One of the few beautiful palaces intact but not Mainanty well.
