Rs 80/- ticket for Indians and there you are inside the temple complex to admire the beauty of this magnificent Bundi fort and chitrashala (for queen- well kept)- both in... More

We had a ball exploring this abandoned fort, unused fort , exploring the ruins, climbing to the top great views all round, spent 3 hrs just exploring, we had heard and were warned about aggressive monkeys but don't let that put you off we had no problems , just give them a wide birth , well worth the hike ,...

The fort looks magnificent from outside. However, unfortunately this fort is out of bounds for Indians.

Forts have there own charm but ill maintainance of this fort has made it risky and dirty place to visit.

By the time I got this fort I'd already seen six others, but the guide really brought this place to life. If you have the right guide, you'll be able to feel what it must have been like to live in fort during its glory days.

Paid 100 rupees and didn't even get to see the fort and to arrive at the main part you need to walk for ages through undergrowth filled with large and aggressive monkeys. The ticket man was very kind and gave us tips to avoid angering them and offered us a stick but we just decided it wasn't worth it. Big... More

After enjoying our time at the Palace beneath, walk strait up to the fort and get lost along the way. Explore old military posts, bushbash a little and discover the numerous step wells inhabited by humongous monkey communities. This was an absolute highlight of our time in Rajastahn. We'd explore the place again if we could. It takes a minimum... More

Don't expect a nicely preserved piece of history but look forward to being drawn into Kiplings world and entering the imaginary kingdom that spawned king Louis. This run down fort delivers everything you'd expect from a bygone time in which grand buildings were built and have been recaptured by nature. This place really takes you into the world of the...

The fort is well worth a visit and a guided walk with Jay Singh is worth the money for entertainment value alone. He is quite a character and will put a smile on your face. I think the monkeys would have caused us an abrupt turn around without Jay Singhs protection. The fort is in a sad state of repair... More

Well worth seeing. A real gem during our two month trip. Great views of the town and beautifully lit at night.
