Although not fancier like Jaipur or Udaipur, Bundi is a fantastic place of palaces, narrow ancient lanes, blue houses, bazaars, lakes, hill backdrops and religious spots. The solitude of the place has allowed it to retain the heritage atmosphere, even after several decades. This 12th century town became popular by Chauan nobles, who retrieved it from local tribes and made it their capital. In 16th century, when the region came under Mughals, majestic structures started to appear.
Apart from forts & palaces and marvelous residences, the place is famous for ancient step wells. On the other hand, nature has played its cards well with waterfalls, rivers, lakes and hill background. Covered with hills on three sides, this place becomes a paradise during rainy season. It is one of the very few lush places in Rajasthan. Bundi has been the source for numerous poetry and prose, which describes the beauty of the land, culture and the nature. Apart from historic, heritage and natural sightseeing, this place is famous for cultural activities, local cuisine and weekend getaways. This oasis does not stop with just hills. The place holds three main lakes, famous for picnic and photography.
The city welcomes you into its historic atmosphere and you would get lost in its charm. If you are up for some exploration, hire a cycle and scale the place. No matter where you go in Bundi, thick lassi (sweet yogurt drink) flavored with local spices and condiments would follow you. This is the land of ancient traditions and beauty, to awe-strike your vacation.
