Bundi – the land of step-wells & palaces

Needs a location

Bundi, a sleepy little charming town has graciously retained the magic of the centuries past. It’s located in the Indian state of Rajasthan, in a narrow valley within Aravalli Hills. The mesmerizing step-wells, miniature gold paintings, serene lakes, beautiful temples, colorful bazaars, vintage-style shops, smiling people, blue houses, and the chaos, is the essence of Bundi.
Did you know that Bundi is also known as the blue city of eastern Rajasthan?
And, do you know how mesmerizing it is during monsoon? Waterfalls, step-wells, and lakes are in full flow. The weather is pleasant throughout the day and the landscape looks full of green.
