Bundi is a place in Rajasthan that we all know about, but do not visit often, as we are not aware of the true beauty and the historic importance that this special place has to offer us. It is situated in between the amazing cities of Udaipur and Jaipur and is very neatly preserved, thus one can see all the ancient things perfectly. This place is very gorgeous due to its amazing royal architecture and scenic man-made lake. It also has a fort of the Maharaja and your guide may tell you of stories related to the palace. So, even if you have been to Rajasthan, then you must come back again to explore this place.
- Baroli Temples
Second in the list is the Baroli temples, which are located to the south of Bundi. These temples are very popular. Even if you are an atheist and do not believe in God and worship, you should come here to see the religious heritage of India. These are not simple idols and stones — they are natural wonders. So, this is also amongst one of those places in Rajasthan that people should definitely visit.
- Fort of Bhainsrorgarh
Once you are in Temples of Baroli, there is another must visit the place near to it. This is the fort of Bhainsrorgarh, which is located on the bank of the River Chambal. When you visit this place, you will see the exact shadow of the fort in the water. It will look like a mirror image of it. Like every other royal family of India, this fort was converted into a hotel by the residences. The only difference is that this hotel is still managed by that family itself. This place should be on your Bucket List if you truly want to encounter the royal architecture of Rajasthan. To reach this place you will have to take a boat ride, which you can take from Baroli.
