Taragarh Fort, Bundi


Taragarh Fort, BundiThe Taragarh Fort is a massive white structure constructed in 1354 AD that stands on a hill. A steep roadway leads to the main gateway of the fort that bears intricate carvings of elephants. The three gateways of the fort are called Lakshmi Pol, Phuta Darwaza and Gagudi Ki Phatak.


Features of the fort

An outstanding feature of the Taragarh fort is the underground tunnels, that were once a refuge to the rulers of the city in case of external threat or enemy attacks. Huge water reservoirs were constructed as part of the fort to store water and distribute it among the people in times of water crisis. They were constructed from the base of the fort. The force from the water released was believed to be such that it could wipe out the entire city. If you're wondering what the stone tower is all about, it is the Bhim Burj, considered vital to the battle plans of the rulers. It houses the Garbha Gunjan, the second largest cannon in India. The Rani Mahal, located within the fort premises, was known as the palace for the queens and concubines of the rulers, hence the name. The fort offers a breathtaking view of the city, especially at sunset, so make sure you plan your visit accordingly. Adjoining the Taragarh Fort is the Bundi Palace that is home to an art gallery. Art-lovers would love to explore the indigenous art on display, such as paintings of the Rasa-Lila.
