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

We had a wonderful guide who described things to us in a very animated manner. This is a must see if you are around Jhansi. Do... More

Me and my friend visited this fort last year. Spectacular views from above the fort. Its vast spread in 15 acres of land, well maintained premises and reminds me of those days. Lots of passages and sacred places too.

"Bundeley Harbolon key munh hamney suni kahani thi... Khoob ladi mardani woh to Jhansi wali Rani thi..." These seemed just a verse we were made to recite in school until I visited the Jhansi Fort... Getting to know the tales of bravery of the great Queen changed my whole mind set... Hats off Ma'am! *bows* This place is full of... More

The Jhansi fort is built over 15 acres of land and has stood testimony of times with the magnificient tale of courage of its queen Rani Laxmibai, possibly the first woman to have led an army on horseback and fought valiantly with her son tied to her back. Each stone of the fort is deeply rooted in partiotism. The Shiva... More

After the guide had taken us through the fort, we went thru the same journey on our own .. .and realized a few corners that were skipped by... More
