Photograph of the Moti Mahal palace at Bundi taken by Gunpatrao Abajee Kale, c.1900. The photograph is from an album of views of Bundi formerly in the collection of Horatio Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener of Khartoum and Broome, (1850-1916), who was Commander in Chief of India between 1902 and 1909. The caption reads, "Moti Mahal Palace [Bundi]. Built by His Highness Maharao Raja Bhao Singhji when he was heir-apparent. Samvat 1702. AD 1645." Bundi is situated in a narrow valley within the Aravalli Hills in Rajputana, India. It was the capital of the major princely state of Bundi during the heyday of the Rajputs. The ruling family of the state, the Hara Chauhan clan of Rajputs built a series of impressive palaces, gardens and tanks here, which appear to have been carved out of the hillside in several tiers.
