Tourist Places in Bundi

Situated in the Hadoti region of the Indian state Rajasthan, Bundi is an ideal vacation place for those who love to get an amalgamation of excitement and peacefulness. Though not so popular in the earlier days, Bundi today has listed its name in top tourist destinations simply because of the cultural and ethnic significance prevalent in the small town. In the year 1193, when Sultan Mohammed Ghauri defeated Prithvi Raj Chauhan, some members of the Chauhan clan took shelter in Mewar and became allies to the Rana there while the younger ones moved to the Chambal valley and fought with Meena and Bhil tribals to establish their kingdom of Hadoti. The city of Bundi was then a part of the kingdom of Kota and was ruled by Hada Chauhans who were the descendants of the famous Chauhan dynasty. Later the two clans of Hada Chauhans formed two separate states at Kota and Bundi, on either sides of the river Chambal.
