I had read about Kukki's World before coming to Bundi, so my husband and I sought him out, hoping for a uniquely Indian experience. I believe we got it! Kukki immediately brought us in his world, while also tailoring our all day expedition (for which he arranged, at short notice, a car and driver) to our desires. We did experience... More

Rajasthan is known for its palaces and crafts. But to come face to face with the the pre-historic attempts to communicate thoughts and concerns in those early days of man, perhaps 10,000 years ago, is another experience altogether. The person who made it possible is Mr. Om Prakash Sharma, more popularly know in the locality as "Kukki-ji". The amount of... More

I experienced more of a tour of Kukki Sr.'s ego, not the cave paintings he claims to have discovered. The "tour" began a few minutes in when he explained how lucky I was to be going on a tour with him, since he is "famous." I said, "And modest, too," but I don't think he got the joke. This was...

This was the best and most unexpected thing that we did on our whole trip to India. Our time in India's nature was a day away from the hustle and bustle of the cities of India. The quiet and beauty of the forest was so unexpected. But the most engaging part of the experience was not just the environment and... More

lMy daughter and I went on a cave painting tour with Mr Kukki Sr. and we also went on a Bundi palace and city tour with Mr Kukki Jr. These two tours were positively the highlight of our stay in Bundi!! Both Mr. Kukki Sr (Om Prakash) and Mr. Kukki Jr. (Ashwini) are great guides. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly,... More

Had a fabulous day touring the Bundi area with Kukki, a local archeologist who has extensive knowledge of the town and fort along with the 100+ step wells he knows about in town. A real highlight was the trip out to see the ancient rock paintings he has discovered and maintained - great to see plus you get a unique... More

I've been on many different tours in many different countries, but I would have to say that my tour of Bundi with Kukki junior has been the best! Mine was not a tour of the cave paintings as Kukki's world is known for, but a personalised tour of the Bundi palace, the township and the baori stepwells. Kukki junior takes... More

We spent an enjoyable day with Kukki Jr. in the countryside outside of Bundi. He has a compelling story of how his father discovered cave paintings, and his enthusiasm is contagious. A refreshing change after seeing so many forts! He has a good eye for birds, and we stopped along the way to view them. Bring good shoes, the hike... More

What a wonderful experience we had! Just go with Kukki junior and explore one of the most interesting things India's history has to offer. Kukki is definitely the best guide. He is helpful and cheerful and also a gifted storyteller. India's heritage that Kukki's father discovered comes alive when he explains the meaning of the cave paintings. So don't hesitate,... More

Mr Omprakash Sharma "Kukki" is one of the most amazing men I have ever met. His knowledge about and single minded devotion to prehistoric cave paintings around Bundi is limitless. He is passionate about his favourite subject even though he has had no formal education. His son Ashwini shares the same passion.
