We visited in the late afternoon. View over a beautiful lake, interesting to see the room where Rudyard stayed for two days but there is not much else. The walk back to town through the streets of Bundi was interesting and a good end to...More

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 choked with lotus which is killing the fish. There is a view of the palace from the road that skirts the shore but don't go in the morning as you will jiust be looking into the hazy sun

This really needs some money spent on it given the history with Rudyard Kipling. The fact you can buy a joint ticket for this and 3 other places just makes it worth while but this really needs some work...there isn't even running water in the...More

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
