One of the best tourist places to visit in Rajasthan is the Taragarh Fort or the Star Fort in Bundi. The fort was constructed in 1534 AD on a hillside. The fort has three gateways called the Laxmi Pol, the Phuta Darwaza and Gagudi ki Phatak. Today, most parts of the fort are in a dilapidated condition. However, it still looks majestic and is the most impressive monument in Bundi.
During earlier times, the Taragarh Fort had a number of tunnels running through the entire hill. These tunnels have now been closed for want of maps. The fort had impressive battlements, the largest of them being the Bhim Burj, on which were mounted huge cannon balls called the Garbh Gunjam.
The fort also has huge water reservoirs, which were built to cater to the water requirements of the residents of the city. The other major attraction of the Taragarh Fort is the Rani Mahal, which served as a harem for the wives and concubines of the rulers. The fort also has Miran Saheb ki Dargah.
