India, Bundi Guide (B): Bundi: a Travel Guide to Indias Shanti, Shanti City
Bundi is what the Indians would call a ‘Shanti, Shanti’ place, which means peaceful to you and me. A tiny city tucked away in the state of Rajasthan, it doesn’t draw as many tourists as it’s neighbours like Jaipur. This makes it the perfect getaway if you want to see a bit of the ‘real India’ while you’re here.
If you’ve been travelling around the major cities, you’ll know that loud traffic, constant horns and busy streets are the norm. But, in Bundi, there’s none of that. Just colourful buildings, friendly locals and a pretty mirror lake to enjoy.
Bundi is located just 3 hours away from Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan, so, you can easily grab a bus heading there for around 300 rupees.
Alternatively, you can catch the Mewar express train from New Delhi which stops in Jaipur on the way. This is a direct train to the neighbouring city of Kota and will be the most convenient as its a sleeper train.
A little travel tip; this train books up quick, even in low season as it’s popular with locals. So, I would plan your route in advance. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
