Orchha is reportedly the only place in the country where Lord Ram is worshipped in his royal aspect and not as an avtar of Vishnu. It is said that Lord Ram resides in Ayodhya by day and sleeps in Orchha at night.

Hence the Ram Raja Temple remains closed throughout the day : the heavy silver doors of the sanctum are flung open only at 7 p.m. when the evening aarti is performed. It’s a moving ceremony laced with a certain amount of pomp and fanfare.

Ram’s wedding is enacted each year in mid December. Orchha itself resembles a bedecked bride as the baraat – comprising gorgeously decorated chariots, caparisoned elephants, and horses – wends its way down the narrow streets. Later, the town celebrates the royal nuptials over a banquet hosted by the temple trust.

Relive the era of Lord Ram and get mesmerized by the beauty of this hidden town in the evening while your visit to Orchha. Discover the magnificence of Raja Ram Temple, Chaturbhuj Temple and many cenotaphs one after  another from the tranquil luxuries of regal Amar Mahal, Orchha!

You would sure love the beauty of this hidden town that depicts the architectural marvel from each of its sculpture, building and cenotaphs. On the same side the trekking, river rafting and the jungle  safari would enthrall your adventurous side.

Explore the surprisingly beautiful Orchha which was founded in the 16th century by the Bundela Rajput chieftain, Rudra Pratap, who chose this stretch of land along the Betwa river as an ideal site for his capital. Of the succeeding rulers, the most notable was Raja Bir Singh Ji Deo who built the exquisite Jehangir Mahal, a tiered palace crowned by graceful chhatris. From here the view of soaring temple spires and cenotaphs is spectacular.
