Loved the ambience. They are built along the banks of the river Betwa which is very serene and lovely.I also saw mangroves which I found startling because I always thought mangroves only grow in saline water.
The cenotaphs mark the spot where kings and queens were cremated.The atmosphere is spooky at dusk with vultures on the towers. My imagination ran riot.Were queens made to commit sati here? I wondered.

so atmospheric and do a favor and go during dusk (ofcourse a rather strict gatekeeper will shoo you off by 530). Absolutely stunning and don't miss the vultures on the domes

We love wandering around orchha and looking at these, They are so impressive and vultures live in them. Particulary nice on sunset and viewed from the temple area.
