The most fascinating of all the magnificent surroundings is the Orchha’s Fort complex. The grand Orchha Complex is divided into three mesmeric sections; Jahangir Mahal, Raj Mahal and Sheesh Mahal. The Raj Mahal was once the prime residence of Bundela kings and their queens. Secret alleys, steep stairs and exquisite murals depicting avatars of Lord Vishnu, whom the super religious king of Bundelkhand; Madhukar Shah worshipped, narrate the story of a powerful era gone by.

It was once the residence of kings.  Jahangir Mahal is another breathtaking palace was built inside the Orchha Fort in the 17th century to mark Jahangir’s visit to Orchha. What makes it even more distinct is that it is designed by combining both Mughal and Bundela architecture.

The splendid town of Orchha is blessed with plethora of archaeological attractions where each temple, ruin, palace and cenotaph narrates intriguing legends and majestic historical tales. But the weather of Orchha is another thing that delights its dwellers and tourists alike. People of Orchha have a special place for Saawan in their hearts as the entire month is full of activities. The month long festivities of Saawan offer every day celebration in the town. Besides sprinkles of rain, here’s one more reason why Saawan is splendid in Orchha.  Saawan Bhado- the natural air coolers of Orchha, which are the blissful retreat in Saawan.

IMG_4018 copy

These strategically constructed pillars keep the area around them cool and refreshing like that of spring in summer. In the month of Saawan, these pillars and their surrounding garden, “Phool Bagh” are flanked by locals and tourists alike to enjoy picnics and the bliss of Saawan under these cooling towers in the garden. Women and children of the house visit the Phool Bagh to rejoice in the weather and festivities with delicious food and sweets. Swings are hanged on trees, religious songs are sung by the women folk of Orchha.

IMG_0308 copy

The towers were perforated on the top such that they could catch the wind, while the lower part of the towers was connected to a reservoir of water. The towers, the water distribution system (aqueducts), and the underground reservoir of water were ingeniously connected to a Chandan Katora or fountain in the pavilion above the retreat. They are perhaps the only example of the Persian system of cooling in India.

IMG_3977 copy

The Phool Bagh, on the other hand, is a laid garden of Orchha and carries the testimony of the highly polished aesthetic sagacity of the Bundelas, who used to rule this small palace. The variety of trees and abundant greenery serve as a perfect base to enjoy the festivities of Saawan in Orchha.

Happy Saawan to you  🙂

Orchha’s awe inspiring saga is told and re told in different eras with grandeur and enthusiasm. The cenotaph town has much more than what has been shared since centuries. If we talk about Ram Raja Temple and Chaturbhuj temple of Orchha, their marvelous architecture and intriguing story will amaze you.

773A4451 copy

Although at first glance, the Ram Raja temple across the road from the Orchha fort complex appears a bit disappointing, with its plain, yellow and white painted facade but the interior is breathtaking. And, there is a charming legend attached to it which is more enticing. While King Madhukar Shah was a worshiper of Lord Krishna, his queen believed in Rama. Their devotional clash culminated in the king demanding that the queen go to Ayodhya and return with her preferred deity in tow. Touched by her plight, Lord Rama in reality appeared to her and agreed to visit Orchha in the form of an infant, but put forth the condition that he would remain in the spot where he was first set down. The king was in hurry to build a grand temple to enshrine the deity, and hence the Chaturbhuj temple, next to the Ram Raja temple was constructed.

destination copy copy

The massive citadel looks like a fortress with soaring spires and palatial architecture. It’s interior architecture represents a grand hall with a high-vaulted ceiling. Chaturbhuj temple is built upon a towering stone platform and reached by a steep flight of steps.

IMG_2251 copy

When the queen arrived in  Orchha, she took a halt in her palace before proceeding towards the temple. Stopping at the royal kitchens next door, she set down the little infant, and true to his word this is where the avatar of Lord Rama established himself, refusing to be moved.

IMG_2300 copy

Thus, the former kitchen turned into the Ram Raja temple, while the Chaturbhuj Temple now houses deities of Radha Shyam. Even today, the Ram Raja temple is the focal point of the town. Here, Lord Rama is worshiped as a king and not as a God. In the evening, Orchha reverberates with the peal of the temple’s bells. Townsfolk gather in the temple premises, under a chhatri or the leafy canopy of a tree, to sing devotional songs.
