The Phool Sagar is an excellent and well-planned structure as also the decoration of this Rajput edifice. The same beauty and its excellence lies in the massive Taragarh fort. This little town has not yet lost a medieval grandeur. Bundi is not exactly a tourist tramping ground but nevertheless, this adds on to its appeal with a curiosity to explore it. The look of the town has a bluish hue similar to that of Jodhpur. The original history claims that Bundi was once the capital of the great Hadoti Kingdom. However Kota, in 1624, was separated and became an independent State.This marked the beginning of downfall of Bundi. The exquisite beauty of its surroundings, its isolation from the madding crowd, its rivulets, hills and valleys, lush green fields, its charm during rainy season, rich variety of flora and fauna, magnificent palatial structures, its winding ways and above all, the simplicity of the rural folk lend the city of Bundi a uniqueness that hardly any place of tourist attraction in the state can claim. It was basically for this reason that Rudyard kipling was mesmerized by its beauty which he captured and expressed in this literary works.
