Unassuming but excellent

Excellent architecture. A combination of hindu and islamic design. Best time for photography is just before sunset. The courtyard looks very grand.

Apart from the beautiful Jehangir Mahal palace, the fort also contains a few other structures and the Sheesh Mahal hotel, where we had a quick bite between exploring the forst and watching the very informative sound and light show later in the evening.

A seven story fort that I had never heard of turned out to be the highlight of the trip (i was coming from Khajuraho and did not think anything could beat that). Don't miss the light and sound show in Hindi. It is the best I have seen in India.

A majestic beauty that takes you back in time and leaves you marvelling at the architectural genius it is. The Orchha Fort is ideal to let yourself be transported back in time.

It's a good place to visit if you like history. Feels good when you reach the top. Light and sound show is good and must watch but its in bad shape and need to be restored.
