Bundi provides a true specimen of how the cities in India used to be, before they were untouched with any modern development, before the culture of malls came in and before there were no outlets of McDonalds or Dominos. Bundi is a beautiful example of how the people of a small place remain so self-contended, how an economy of a village or to say a small town in India works and to see to believe that real India lives in its villages & small towns like it.
The place is full of character with old havelis (mansions) & houses still lining up the streets. Small, interesting & colorful bazaars are full of locals, whom you can see dressed in their colorful best. Here the 'Bundi Fort' also requires a special mention as it's undoubtedly one of the most impressive forts of Rajasthan. It would even not be an exaggeration to claim it as one of the most impressive forts of India. It stores some very beautiful traditional murals & frescoes. During the State time, Bundi was popular for hunting.
Sukh Mahal- Sukh Mahal evokes memories of Rudyard Kipling who not only stayed here but found inspiration for the famous work 'kim'.
Garh Palace- The foremost attraction in Kota is the 'Garh'. This large complex, also called the City Palace is built in a predominantly Rajput style of architecture. The Palace is a rambling complex of suites and apartments built by different rulers at different times.
Rao Madho Singh Museum- Situated in the old palace, it houses a splendid collection of Rajput miniature paintings of the Kota school, fascinating sculptures, arms and valuable antiques.
Taragarh Fort- It was built in 1345 and is great to ramble around at leisure. This is rather a ramshackle fort, with its overgrown vegetation.
