Bundi Palace inspired Rudyard Kipling to write KIM

Bundi, Rajputana, is the place where Kipling was inspired to write Kim.

In 1889, Kipling visited the United States for the first time on his way from India to London.  He had been released from the paper he was working for over a dispute (but many of his American observations were published by the Pioneer paper he had worked for).  He traveled from San Francisco up the west coast to Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA then spent a little time in British Columbia, Canada, then returned to the US working across the country—through Yellowstone, down to Salt Lake City, to Omaha, Nebraska to Chicago then Pennsylvania and on to Niagara Falls, Toronto, Washington D.C. and then to New York.  His observations are recorded in his American Notes.   (http://books.eserver.org/nonfiction/american_notes.html ) On his travels, he got to meet Mark Twain in Elmira, New York, feeling quite awed by his presence.
