This is one of the palaces inside the Orchha Fort complex which apparently was built purely for the one night that the Mughal Emperor stayed in the Orchha as a guest of Bir Singh Deo, the King of Orchha. Sounds a bit dubious. Regardless, the building is definitely the best thing to see in the fort complex. It’s certainly a pretty building with multi-tiered arcades and colonnades with views into the interiors and courtyards. The walls are topped with elegant Indo-Islamic style circular colonnades of varying sizes.

The best thing to see in the fort complex and in Orchha.

This is a majestic palace,built by veer singh deo.The architecture is indo islamic style,with colourful blue and green glazed tiles.The jharokhas add to the beauty of the palace and offer very good views of the orchha town,also,provide nice backdrop for the photographs.
The main entrance is towards east,as per the Vaastu,with huge artistic door,and statues of elephants.There is a stable for the animals oo. Rai praveen mahal can be seen from here.
There are two storeys,and one should be prepared to climb steep steps.
Better to visit early in the morning or after 4 pm as afternoons can be quite hot.Carry a water bottle.
We hired Mr Hemant singh as a guide,and he explained us the history,as well as clicked nice photos for us.
This palace as well as other monuments in Orchha are underrated.The government should be proactive and must maintain these classic monuments and market them well.

Jahangir Mahal is located in the Orchha Fort Complex and is a must visit place for history buffs as it reflects the rich heritage of Bundela kings. The palace was built in honour of the Mughal King Jahangir and is of Indo-Islamic architecture. One can hire a cab from Jhansi, which has the nearest railway station to reach this place.

Jehangir Mahal was built by Vir Singh Bundela to invite Mogul emperor Jehangir .
It took 22 years to built from 1605-1627 and Jehangir stayed for one night only .then it never been used and later during British time it was army garrison.

Jahangir fort is a very beautiful monument. You need a nice guide to explain the significance of it. Some of the best architectural marvels were executed here like Persian blue tiles. Beautiful gazing jharokhas and protuding balconies, swarming galleries lit by beautifully carved lattices, one can just imagine.
Would love to go back to Orchha.

Ironically, the story goes that the Bundela Rajput ruler of Orchha built this magnificent structure in 1605 as a lodge for Jahangir, son of Akbar, but that he only stayed here for 1 night . . .
The place is grand and in fairly good condition. It is especially worth looking at the earlier main gate, which has intricate decorations and is flanked by balconies and carved elephants. The views from there over the gardens and stables are good.
The palace has some rooms with very nicely painted walls and ceilings ; better viewed with a knowledgeable guide for explanations.

This was my third time that I was visting orccha. jhangir mahel is such a beauty to live in. I would have mot known about it until one of the mahel staff agreed to show us the living space above the restaurent. Omre is his name. With such a good smile and warm gesture he said, “ma’am you can see the king suite if you wish to, I can escort you.’’ I was very frequent to the mahel’s restaurent and every time I wished to see the living space above.
Omre really showed the space so beautiful mesmerized rooms above the restaurent. I told my husband to book it for our anniversary. Omre even explained us how they preserved the old antique items which are so gorgeous and adds to the beauty of the king suite.
Omre really made our day. Thank you so much for such a beautiful and generous gesture and we will surely book the entire rooms above the restaurent for an event next year 😃🧡.

This is one of three palaces in the location of the Fort.
You must have a guide to make the most of this tour otherwise it is easy to move from one palace to another without realising it. This palace is marked by symbolic large stone elephants used for welcoming Indian Royalty.
The decoration of the three storeys is ornate. It is a large palace with over 100 rooms.

Jehangir mahal is situated inside orcha fort complex. The entrance ticket for Orchha fort complex is Rs 12. With this ticket of Rs 12 one can visit Jehangir mahal , raja mahal , royal chatrris and Laxmi temple.

This mahal is beautiful and is near Raja mahal. Try to reach Orchha fort complex early say at 9 am to beat the heat as day progess and don't forget to bring sufficient drinking water while coming to Jehangir mahal.

Not to be missed place in Orchha.

This palace was supposed to be built for a one night visit of Jahangir. It was a very strange story to be told, but no doubt it's a wonderful example of architecture and so beautifully built that one can just keep wandering inside. Those turquoise blue tiles, cupola, and narrow galleries, everything has a class and is very integrated. Orchha is a heaven for travellers.
