Orchha, a medieval city placed on the banks of river Betwa literally means a ‘hidden place’. Today this little village under deep slumber has wonderfully preserved the spirit of its illustrious past. Adorned with splendid temples, cenotaphs, striking forts, chhatris, the capital of the Bundela Kingdom breathes history in every detail. Surrounded by thick Dhak forest where every dawn is embraced by chirping of birds, where the scenic water body adds to the picturesque environ, the place appears like a sweet reverie. One cannot stop getting drowned in the melodious rhythm of river Betwa. Orchha is a weekend getaway from Delhi, Kanpur and Bhopal or visited as a part of Itinerary along with heritage circuit of Agra, Gwalior and Khajuraho.
