Bundi Travel Guide

Bundi is one of the important cities in the Hadoti area of the state of Rajasthan. It is a city of roughly 88,000 dwellers according to the 2001 census. This olde worlde little city is fast becoming a well-liked tourist attraction owing to the fact that it is representative of the culture prevalent in Rajasthan. It is of great architectural importance since this small city is dotted with ornate forts, splendid palaces, and step well tanks also known as baoris in the local dialect. Bundi city is the administrative capital of Bundi District.

In the olden times, the area in and around the city of Bundi was actually inhabited by different local tribes. The Parihar Meenas were famous amongst all the tribes. Bundi is believed to have derived its name from a previous Meena ruler known as Bunda Meena. Bunda-Ka-Nal was the name given to this city previously. The word Nal means “narrow ways.” Afterward, Rao Deva Hara, who took over Bundi from Jaita Meena in A.D. 1342, renamed the adjacent area.

Bundi is a small city in the state of Rajasthan and hence, has not joined the league of the metropolis in India as of yet. As a result, Bundi has retained its traditional charm. The locals living in this quaint city are old fashioned and follow the customs and rituals typical to the state of Rajasthan. Hindi and Rajasthani are the languages spoken here. The city is known for its typical Rajasthani cuisine like dal bati, churma, besan ki misi puri, lachha paratha etc.
