Chaurasi Khambon ki Chhatri

Chaurasi Khambon ki Chhatri or "84-Pillared Cenotaph" is a chhatri located in Bundi town, Rajasthan, India. It was constructed in 1740 by the Maharaja of Bundi, Rao Raja Anirudh, as a memorial to his foster brother, Deva.

The structure has a large shivling covered by a decorated roof top that is supported by 84 pillers; tradition has it that one is unable to reach 84 correctly when counting them.
