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

At this Jhansi fort the known fight for Independence started. I would rate the fort Very Good since it is in much better condition than other forts in country. You can get a guide who can walk you through the chapters of glorious history and you can imagine the events of 1847. And also too read about the Rani of... More

Not much to see but if you are in the neighborhood you can pay a visit to the fort. Its in the city area. There is a basic 5Rs. fee for the entry. Take a guide for better understanding of things.

Jhansi Fort is a great place to visit, it is big enough to be interesting, but not so big you get lost in it. It is very much a Fort/Palace rather than a Palace/Fort, and was the scene of some very interesting action in the Indian Mutiny of 1857-8, when it was stormed by the British Army after a siege....

This Fort is a must see. Make sure you get a great tour guide who is actually knowledgeable about the fort and this could make or break your trip. I would recommend reading about the Jhansi ki Rani history before visiting the fort because the guides are simply not that great. The fort is a historical gem in India and... More

It is a very nice place to go. And it is not far from downtown. You can go with a tuk tuk and spend one hour or two there. Not all the constructions are well cared but it does not make the visit less important. Also going down the hill there is a series of sculptures encraved. Worth to go... More

The Fort at Jhansi immediately strikes in our hearts as a grandiose structure and makes us imagine the glory that must be of the ancient times. Located on a hill, it is hard to imagine how it was constructed as even today it stands tall and proud overlooking the suburb of Jhansi. The only complain is, other than keeping it... More
