Deogarh or Bundi

What are the pros & cons of staying in either area. We are spending a few days in the Rajasthan area and one of this is going to be a stop-over for us. We are a family of 3 with a child of 9. We shall only be there a couple of days at the most. Which would make most sense for us.

Never stay at Bundi, all the monuments are in worse condition there. Bundi fort is on top of the hill, the environment is absolutely unsafe. The approach road is full of monkeys, extremely disappointing. Other monuments are in equally bad condition. Bundi is the worst place I have ever been.

Bundi has a great atmosphere and the crumbling ruins are part of that atmosphere, as is the maze of the old town. The Rani Ki stepwell is beautiful too...

Monkeys are not a problem and aren't anymore aggresive than anywhere else

Deogarh will be best. Around here you can visit to lakecity Udaipur, historical place Haldi ghati, temple city Nathdwara and get good road and air connectivity.

For your information, Rani-ki Bawri has now become a public bathroom. As Sukh Mahal is now used by the washermen.

The nearest Udaipur Airport has daily flights connects with Jodhpur,Jaipur,Aurangabad,Mumbai,Delhi and other cities. The mavli rail junction is the closest to nathdwara. trains are available due to distance and timing. The National Highway Number 8, Delhi-Ahmadabad-Mumbai road passes through the nathdwara.

We stayed in Deogarh, four years ago on the way to Jodhpur from Udaipur.

Lovely palace, gracious hosts. The rooms were the most beautiful we had ever stayed in.

Not much to see in the town itself, It is a small village.

But we saw Ranakpur (beautiful) and Nathdwara(crowded) on the way.

I have not been to Bundi.

Cheers

Bundi. As an Indian, I am very famililar with Rajasthan and Deogarh has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Extortion, threats, and harrasment. They are the most incompetent "heritage hotel" (wannabe) in the world, forget india. Unless you like being miserable, go to Bundi!
