Bundi is known across the country for its school of miniature paintings, one of the main arts of India. The town itself, isolated in its valley, and independent from its neighbouring states, even appears to be a miniature painting, frozen in time.
From almost anywhere you stand in Bundi, you can hear the faint echo of metalic hammering. There seemed to be brass and silver pots down every alley, on every bicycle and in many of the shops. It was just another little detail that added to the charm of the town.
The small sleepy town of Bundi, a fairly unexplored city with lots to offer, is surrounded by on three sides by the oldest hills in India: the Aravallis. It is also guarded by an ancient wall with four gateways.
Bundi is located about 5 hours from Jaipur and 5 hours from Ajmer and local buses run regularly. . .so why this town hasn’t become a bigger tourist target is a mystery to me, but hopefully one that will continue until after I make my next visit.
