I'm a Japanese living and travelling a lot in India. Orchha is not convenient to visit from metropolises. But, it's worth it. Unique constructions and atmosphere. You can enjoy and learn history. Nice. I stayed at Jansi.

This fort is near of Jhansi but it's part of Madhya Pradesh tourism. Near of this pass a river that's name Betva. Orchha has a Temple of loard Ram. I will prefer to all.

We spent a couple of hours here climbing up down and around. Great giews of the town and surrounds. The 7.30pm sound and light show was very informative about the history.

I just loved this place!! A big fort, full of rooms, stairs in an amazing location. The small houses or place around are also worth the visit and you'll get a great view on the fort.

Heat was oppressive- talking over 110- but we loved the views and building. Wear good,solid shoes for the climbing steep steps (and fast turns). There are some dangerous, plummet to your death areas, so watch your steps! Building has glorious ceilings- beautiful views-

After the Cenotaph's of Orchha, this fort is the next best thing. The sound and light show is a must watch as it is well structured (in its presentation) and is well lit. Although the fort requires a bit of restoration, nevertheless one can see the confluence of the architecture.
