No matter what kind of traveler you may be, this fort is a must-see! Being a Professor of History and Heritage with specialization in architecture, I can vouch that this fort is at par with The Amber Fort of Jaipur in terms of its architectural splendor. Though not half as large as it, yet Orchha Fort leaves one agog with... More

This attraction truly deserves its number one ranking. The Raja Mahal & the Jehangir Mahal are truly well maintained structures & the MP government truly deserves credit for it. The carvings on the structures are worth watching. The ASI appointed guides give all the required information during the visit to the fort & make our visit truly memorable. The light... More

Orchha and the fort is an amazing place. Everybody should go here. The fort and palace is wellpreserved and gives good insight in the royal life in India. The whole area is fantastic. You can see the whole area from the top floor, and gives good pictures of the other attractions.

Orchha fort at the bank of river Betwa is history coming alive. Nice architectures and stoneworks by Bundelkhand warriors. Restaurant is fine and pocket friendly with royal interiors. The evening light and sound show is must see when history comes alive.

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

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.
