I had fun here ascending up and down stairs and wandering around the place. The building is entirely bare so there's not that much to look at. The presence of rubbish and bug nests in some passages was also disappointing. There's a lack of boundaries and it's not clear where I am and am not supposed to traverse.

This and the cenotaphs make Orchha a must see destination. An awful lot of great sights within a stones throw of each other.

Although the word Orchha means hidden in the local dialect, this fort is no longer a hidden fort for the world. It is one of the great monuments that you may like to visit while coming to Jhansi area. The main structures in this fort are Raja Mahal, Jahangir Mahal and the state owned heritage hotel Sheesh Mahal. The construction... More

Its a great historical place, better to hire a guide with you, so that you can get the story behind the monuments. I visited here and got to know that the colors used for painting is made from flowers, and there is palace which was made by king for jahaangir to welcome him. that palace consist of both hindu-muslim architecture.

We spent there about 1,5h. It is worth to visit. Ticket price was 250INR for foreigners. Lots of stairs, and nice view from the top. Some remained paintings on the walls.

Not so well maintained. But as I said in my other reviews it is worth hiring a guide as they are very knowledgeable. The palace gives an insight into the bygone days of the Kings and Queens.
