Orchha the place of Lord Rama’s worship

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!
