One can take the vehicle right upto the ramparts of the jehangir mahal where there is a Fort hotel. The fort is majestic, steeped in history and has intricate carvings and paintings. The light and sound show is a masterclass and will leave you spell bound

Visited in may and its too hot but still the fort is beautiful and very interesting, The government should take some action to preserve this heritage site. Worth visiting.

One of the lesser-known but soon-to-be-tourist-hotspot type place in India. Nowadays the promotion helps. For the architecture, the specialty will attract many. Private guide service available.Jahangir mahal is in good condition but not the other mahals.

An impressive site to view adding to an interesting tour of Indian palaces and forts etc. Some parts may be in dire need of restoration but money can only go so far! One can still appreciate the must have been the original splendour.

The fort in itself is interesting, although there is not much to see. Beware of touts posing as guides and asking exorbitant fees. The duration required to see the fort is not more than 30 min, and these guides do not tell anything that isn't there on the internet already. Good place for history buffs.

Recently, I did a long travel in my Fiat Linea from Bhopal to Gurgaon and back. Long drive in my new car was my primary objective. First, visited Devgarh Jain temples enroute which is 30 Kms from Lalitpur. There are very nice marvellous ancient temples on a hill in the forest area on the banks of Betwa river. A really... More

I hired a bike for the day which is great way to get around Orchha. It was fantastic cycling around the grounds of the fort and being able to dismount when I wanted to explore more by foot (and take better photos!). The fort itself is a beautiful well maintained building, you can't miss it when you visit a Orchha!

We went to the Fort and initially refused a guide but found that there was no signage anywhere and we had the whole day to kill. We went back and hired Jitendra Richhariya who is a government approved guide (they sit right at the entrance). We paid him for a tour of everything - the fort, the temples and the... More
