Kota Bundi Trip
Experience the Aura of Rajasthan
Bundi is also known as the blue city of Eastern Rajasthan, located in a narrow valley within the Aravalli hills like a small oasis. It is mainly famous for its mansions, forts, paintings, step wells, and palaces.
Bundi was the capital of a major princely state during the heyday of the Rajputs. The region around Bundi was earlier occupied by the Mina and Bhil tribes and the area was named after a popular Mina Man named Bunda Meena. Initially, Bundi was known as "Bunda-Ka-Nal," nal meaning narrow passage between the rugged hills.
