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

We visited Orchha to see the Orchha Fort. It was a 40 min drive from Jhansi that was our base camp. The monument was truly magnificent and stands 5 story tall. We did hire a guide but he kept telling us tits and bits but not any substantial information. He told us that the Mogul Emperor Jahangir visited Orchha and... More

overall you can complete everything in orccha in one day ; this is a hidden jewel in MP ; you need to see this with khajuraho to make sense of the history ; the light and sound show is just magnificent ; definitely watch it if you are in orchha

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.
