Things to do in Orchha
Photographer's delight and explorer's paradise, Orchha in Madhya Pradesh is a retreat of absolute bliss away from the drill and drone of city life. A scenic place where man's architecture and nature's artistry are in perfect symphony, Orchha was founded by Maharaja Rudra Pratap Singh in 1501.
Situated on the banks of Betwa river, Chattris is a set of magnificent royal tombs of the Maharajas, placed on a platform and supported by the pillars.
The charm of Chattris is best experienced when it is viewed from a narrow bridge on the opposite side of the river, from where the entire reflection of the tombs can be seen.
Jehangir Mahal (Orchha Fort)
Built as be a garrison and citadel for the Mughals to allow greater control over the Bundela region, this palace was completed in 1598 by Bharath Bhushan after he defeated Vir Deo Singh of Bundela. The domes are built according to Timurid customs and the gates or Iwans are large enough to allow entry of War elephants.
Raja Mahal (Orchha Fort)
Built during the 17th century, the Raja Mahal has withstood the test of time without losing its charm that transports you back to one of the golden eras of history. The palace is constructed beautifully with impeccable architecture and breathtaking grandeur.
Ram Raja Temple
This beautiful Ram temple has an intriguing history behind it. The Idols which were supposed to be installed in the magnificent Chaturbhuj Temple were kept on the ground where this temple now stands.
