Jhansi is a quaint and sleepy looking little town but an important junction on the busy New Delhi - Bhopal railway line. Never was a big deal as far as tourist attractions go but this one is surely worth a visit. Historically important, the structure sits on a hilltop and isn't that imposing if you compare it to the other... More

This is a very big fort and their is a Ancient Machine gun on the entrance for display. It was the main fort of Rani Laxmibai (Brave Queen of Jhansi)... More

Folklore dictates that one must visit it. One has heard so much during childhood that a two hour visit is an absolute necessity. The museum is also about 500m down and it also is worth a visit.... particularly the section that houses the sculptures

But it a real attraction for fort. You can visit whole fort in 2-3 hours. Best way to reach by auto. They normally... More

A short visit to the place though but location of fort in the heart of city and provides a panoramic view to the entire Jhansi town. Though I could not see the fort from inside but a visit around the place itself was a unique experience. The old fort still looks grand and tells the tale of Indian Freedom struggle

Liked the fort, but to reach the Fort the Autorickshaw people are a day light robbery. Even at fort the charges to watch the show they charge Rs 50/- per head and that I think that is not worth for the show. A little more can be added and make it a lively show. Children below 5years should not be... More
