Orchha

The grandeur and opulence of the former Bundela dynasty is well reflected in Orchha, set amidst the flat Bundelkhand countryside. Built by Raja Rudra Pratap on an artificial island on Betwa river, Orchha (17 Km from Jhansi) takes you back to a royal era when Bundela rulers enjoyed the finer things of life cocooned in the comforts of their citadel. Orchha is a photographer's delight. With its forts, regal palaces, striking temples and chhatris, it narrates a beautiful medieval tale.The architectural splendor of the monuments in Orchha reflects the glory of its rulers. The Betwa River, on whose banks Orchha lies, and the forests around it attract tourist to this place.
