It's takes 25 minutes to walk to the lake and the small palace. Fascinating back alleys and great little vignettes of daily life. The road turns into a dirt track 5 minutes before the lake. Very dusty. When you arrive at the lake the view...More

The lake is big. Some government facilities are here such as a museum and a room the Jungle Book author has stayed. It’s worth visiting. At the same time, this place is not great. If you have time and a car at Bundi, you can...More

If you can stand the early summer heat, this is the time to visit this small palace when the waterlilies are in bloom. Otherwise only just worth the visit to see a small unfurnished room with a few photos where Kipling wrote Kim.

the lake is spectacular but it is slowly filling up with garbage thrown by locals. Sukhmahal nearby is worth a visit for the view. Avoid the museum. Purchase the combined ticket here for three monuments in Bundi-Sukh Mahal, Raniji ki baori stepwell and 84 pillar...More

A small walk (750 mtrs) from the main market bundi will land you in front of this very beautiful and clean lake that makes the other side of the targarh fort a visit worth for. The water is really clean and one can sit near...More
