Where to eat in Bundi?

I kept roaming in Bundi till the evening. I had visited all the places which I included in my one day’s itinerary and then I searched for a place to eat in Bundi. The last place that I visited in Bundi was 84 pillared cenotaph which was a little bit far from the main market. When I came out on the main road after visiting the chhatri, I stopped an auto wallah and asked him to drop me at a nice place to eat in Bundi. “Yaha koi badhiya restaurant hai kya?” (Is there a nice restaurant nearby?)“Han, hai na!

I could only count 82 pillars of 84 Pillared Cenotaph

The architectural wonders of Bundi kept me overwhelmed for the day. Since I visited for one day only and I had to pick the most iconic places to visit in Bundi, 84 Pillared Cenotaph was still untouched in my list. The name itself was pretty impressive and kept me glued to visit here. I had to return to Gurgaon the same night thus I was in no mood to leave this place without visiting. It was far from Sukh Palace and as I told in my earlier post, there are no regular public transport services, no Ola, Uber or any other sort of cab facility; it’s just the local auto-rickshaws. I had taken a combined ticket for three places i.e. Raniji Ki Baori, Sukh Niwas Palace and Chaurasi Khambhon ki Chhatri or 84 Pillared Cenotaph in Bundi which was a great relief. After spending an hour or so at ...
