Orcha fort has good architect. Place to visit but not well maintained. Temple is beautiful. I have noticed that some part of fart has been changed as a hotel. that hotel was well maintained and good place to stay.

Orchha is quite a way from other destinations so it was a long journey to get there and away. But on balance it was worth it. The Fort is very interesting (at least with a guide) and much less crowded than the more popular sites. It is easy to wander around and a pretty relaxing spot.

Orchha has a very rich history and its beauty lies in the temple where Shri Ram is in standing posture.Nowhere in india you will find Shri Ram standing and this is because it is his Durbar .Orchha 's history can be better understood by going light and sound show which is fantastic .You can also cross the river on foot...

As usual there is no health and safety in place in the fort, and you can climb to high places and fall off if you are not careful. Beuatiful paintings, and impressive buildings,

Not much to see here, just the building and city view. Do not see why it is so famous. Carvings are just so-so.

A small fort in good repair. Never realised that the Bundela Dynasty was based in Orchha since the 17th Century, and were responsible for many Forts including Jhansi and Datia. If you want to see the Sound and Light show and know Hindi opt for it and not English.

A nice complex where you can climb right up to the top for some stunning views of Orchha and surrounds. There are some good 15/16th century paintings that are in good condition that you can see inside too. The ticket gives you access to all the other sights in Orchha (temple, cenotaphs) and is only about R250 plus about R25... More
