We visited this fort while returning from Orchha. It is a small, but pretty fort, which is much better maintained than the fort at Orchha. It was built by the Bundela king Raja Bir Singh Deo, but it fell into the hands of the Mughals soon after, to be followed by the Marathas and the British. The fort is however... More

An imposing fort which was important historically for its role in the first war to regain independence in 1857 . (Yes |I am British,but abhor my arrogant and imperialist minded countrymen who still call it the 'indian mutiny') Its noteworthy for its comparatively modern ( 19th century) military installations. Rifle slots, some with thick steel plate shutters still in place... More

Worth a visit if you are passing by Jhansi, but certainly nothing as pretty as the Orchha fort nearby. The main point of attraction is that it is Rani Lakshmibai's fort and you can see a bit of her history here...the temple where she prayed, the gardens she roamed in, the wall where she leapt from, with her son tied...

Fort of historical importance. It played at important role in the first war of independence in 1857. The place that marks the legendary jump of Rani Lakshmi Bai on horseback out of the fort to escape from the British troops is marked. Will take about an hour to visit the fort

One of the most cleanest fort in India. The light and sound show in the evening is quite historian. The narrative history of Jhansi is extremely informative. Along with the fort the Rani Mahal is quite impressive. Do visit the Old Jhansi Bazar (by walking) and observe the old historic buildings.
