Explore Orchha

So much to discover!

The historic town of Orchha was the capital of the mighty Bundela Rajput kings and still remains one of the most popular tourist towns in Madhya Pradesh. Nestled on the banks of river Betwa, this historical gem is a testimony to the era gone by, with palaces and temples still maintaining their grandeur and royalty, even to this day. Here, the river Betwa splits into seven channels, also called the Satdhara. According to legends, this is in honour of the seven erstwhile chiefs of Orchha. With fascinating temples and palaces, a trip to Orchha is sure to take you back to the olden times. 

Orchha Fort - Situated on the island of Betwa river, the Orchha Fort is a true architectural marvel. Home to some incredible palaces and temples, the three most important palaces located here include Jahangir Mahal, Raj Mahal and the popular Rai Parveen Mahal. Dating back to the 17th century AD, the Jahangir Mahal was built by Vir Singh Deo, who had it made as a symbol of warm reception to the Mughal ruler, Jahangir, during the latter’s first visit to the city. The entrance of the Jehangir Mahal is marked by an artistic and traditional gateway. Marked by stylishly hanging balconies, porches and apartments, this is one place that is truly remarkable in all senses.  

Chaturbhuj Temple - Constructed by the famous Bundela Rajput kings, the Chaturbhuj temple was built in the 17th century. Dedicated to Vishnu, the name Chaturbhuj is derived from two words, chatur which means four and bhuj which means arms, which literally translates to one who has four arms and refers to Rama, an avatar of Vishnu. The temple has a complex multi-storied structural view which is a blend of temple, fort and palace architectural features. In addition, the top view of the temple is truly extraordinary.

Jhansi Fort - Built over 400 years ago, Jhansi Fort was built by Raja Bir Singh Ju Deo on Bangra, a rocky hill. Located at the center of the city, this massive fort is also called Rani Jhansi Ka Quila and covers an area of 49 acres. One of the best fortified areas in the country, the sculptures inside the museum is a great medium, through which to understand the history of Bundelkhand. After building this structure of the fort, Bundelas ruled the kingdom for 25 years, before Jhansi came under the rule of the Mughals and later the British.

The old Fort wall of the Fort has ten gates that are known as Datia, Khanderao, Saniyar, Lakshmi, Panch Mahal, Bhander, Jhirna, Sagar, Baragaon and Orchha. All these doors are made of wood and the Bhander gate is currently closed for visitors. There are also breeches mades on walls between Saniyar and Jhirna, that was created by the British Army in 1858 during an assault with the Mughals.

Raj Mahal ranks amongst the most historic monuments in the state and is truly an outstanding piece of architecture. Founded in the 17th century by Madhukar Shah, a holy ancestor of Bir Singh Ju Deo, it had functioned as the princely accommodation of former kings of Orchha. The most prominent feature of this palace is the big towers crowned by ‘Chhatris’ situated in its outer premises and mural paintings present in its interiors.

Rai Parveen Mahal, which is currently in ruins is surrounded by lush gardens. In olden  times, she was a poetess and dancer. Her charm so attracted the king Indramani who  built the palace for her.
