I chanced upon Orchha while trying to figure out how to spend my transit at Jhansi. I would recommend skipping Jhansi's local sights and going straight to Orchha. Hidden from public glare these huge monuments at Orchha including the Orchha fort have survived the test of time.It would be though great if more care is taken to preserve our historical... More

Due to road widening in Orchha many fronts of shops have been pulled down resulting in unsightly appearance of the center of the town. There is now much speeding of traffic and it is quite dangerous at times. There needs to be: 1 Repair of Shop Fronts 2 Speed Humps 3 Proper Traffic Control by the Police 4 No Horn... More

Completely different historic experience with unusual peace & serenity of religion & spirituality. You can sit back nearby the river flowing at the back of fort soaking your feet in the refreshing water (dont try this during rain). You may also enjoy light & sound show in the evening. Unusual architecture, mystic stories pertaining to Lord Rama as it is... More

The forts/ palaces are spectacular and provide great views of the surrounding areas. The architecture is very interesting and well preserved. You can walk through. Suggest using a guide to assist and explain the history. There is... More

Orchha is a lovely place with very few tourists - a definite bonus! The Fort is a bit dilapidated in places but has a very interesting history - and it's nice to be able to get up close to things to see and touch. Some great views and fantastic photo opportunities!
