Bundi :

Prithviraj Chauhan was the last Hindu ruler of Delhi. He was defeated by Mohamad Ghori in 1191 A.D. In the 12th Centaury one of his son’s established their rule at Fort Bambaoda, 10 km from Menal.

This Chauhan clan later came to be known as the HADA Rajputs The area ruled by the Hadas - Bundi, Kota , Baran and Jhalawar - came to be known as the Hadoti Region.

BUNDI - Was Captured in 1241 by Rao Deva Singh from the Chief of the Meena tribals.

KOTA was conquered by Price Jet Singh of Bundi in 1264 from Kotia Bheel, the chief of the Tribe Ruling Kota. Thus Kota became a Jagir (Land Grant) of Bundi.

TARAGARH FORT at 500 ft., dominates Bund city. This Fort was completed by Rao Bar Sing in 1354 A.D. Since there was no source of water available on this hill four massive water tanks were hewn out of the solid rock to retain the monsoon waters for their use. All rain water on the Fort was diverted to these four tanks along the channels provided through a simple filter system.

Bundi Palace is just below the Fort. It is one of the purest examples of Rajput architecture. Rao Raja Umed Singh or Shriji (1739-1770), the saintly ruler of Bundi, is considered amongst the greatest rulers of Bund. Considered to be a saint, philosopher . and a brave warrior. He created the Chitrashala or the Bundi School of Paintings in 1739.. He is worshiped to this day by the people of Bundi.

He also built the NAVAL SAGAR in 1750. Owing to his immense interest in Religion, Culture & in Education Bundi came to be known as the ‘Choti Kashi’.
