Photographer's Note

The Garh Palace, the jewel in the crown of Bundi, has a number of petite palaces encircling the central majestic residence, built by various rulers down the pathways of history. Most of these palaces, built during the 17th and 18th centuries, carry innumerable tales of love, valour and sacrifice etched on their walls. The Garh Palace is a fine example of exquisite Rajput architecture, housing some of the most amazing Bundi frescoes. The palaces inside the royal fort of Bundi are elaborately decorated with vibrant paintings that beautifully depict scenes from daily life in the court of Bundi as well as vivid scenes from traditional literary and religious texts. The illustrations are testimony to the rich cultural interrelationships that give the paintings their unique power and importance.
