ABOUT THE HISTORY OF BUNDI




There is nothing in the world that gains glory overnight, it takes a lot of effort and hard work to reach the desired accomplishment. Such is the case with a town like Bundi as well. It had to go through different phases of both hell and heaven to reach a level that honourable chief minister of Rajasthan Mrs VasundharaRaje is promoting this ultimate land of beauty and traditions.

Bundi was a town that had been ruled by various categories of varied local tribes and among those tribes, the most popular among the Bundi people was Mena tribe. It is this community from where the name of Bundi was derived. The name of the Sardar (that is the king or head of a tribe) was Bunda Mena from where the former name of the city came.

The name of the city was ‘BundakaNal’, which meant “Narrow ways”, as the city is constructed in old- style and has narrow lanes. This tribe was successfully ruling the small town until in the year 1342, the king named Rao Deva Hada annexed the land from the tribe leader Jaita Mena and merged it into his empire without including the surrounding area of Hadolti (present day district), which was a land of Hada Rajput’s.

Bundi was under the SisodiaRajputs of the then region ofMewar and the Hada rulers were their vassals of the Mughal Empire until the year 1568 when the King Rao Surjan Singh had to go on knees in front of Akbar the great, when the area of Ranthambore fell from the Empire.

The small town of Bundi was also ruled by various kings of Rajput culture and was a land under the Mughal rule. The famous palace was a lovely architectural stature thatwas loved by the kings and was in the ode to annex it under their empire. Later the British East India Company came in the picture and the area was under their control, but it was a neglected land. However, the king at that time who has the power of that area was a friend of British Officers and his name was, Maharao Bahadur Singh, he was also a guest in the wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Now Bundi is a part of free India and rests solely in the arms of the most loved state of the nation, Rajasthan.
