It's a very nice fort, not so far from betwa retreat. We took a guide, but it's better to go for the light and sound show before seeing the palace. As they explain very well and it'll be easy to understand thereafter. There is a...More

You require only one ticket for all the monuments in Orachha, and the rush isn't much, just go to the fort complex and buy a ₹10 ticket per head. The monuments allow entry till 5pm.
