The fort looks very tiny from the entrance, but once inside it offers quite a rich history and architecture. Sadly it is not well maintained like most heritage buildings in the region. The Light and sound show was worth a watch especially with Om Puri rendering his majestic voice

Jhansi Fort was a average experience. Having visited a lot of Forts in India, I didnt find this place exciting. Firstly the staff there was not very informative about the fort. The light show which was supposed to be in the evening was cancelled..

It is a good fort, unlike most others that I have visited. While it looks small in the initial moments, as one spends like meandering around the fort, it is obvious that the fort is quite large and was deliberately created in this manner. The upkeep is quite poor as the walls are cluttered with graffiti. All in all, a... More

It is a nice and historic Fort, but the environment is dirty with Polythene thrown all around. It was even a bigger shock when compared to the Orchha fort which was clean (as was the riverside). Only some animal droppings were these. The Fort is however worth a visit if nothing else, just for the Historic Importance.

Jhansi has little to do - all exciting stuff in Orchcha, Anyway visited this in spare time while on a business trip. This was Rani LaxshmiBai's fort. Clean/well kept but nothing remarkable. A few canons, gardens, private temple and the spot where the Rani jumped. Recommended strictly only if you have time to kill
