Marvelous town Orchha in Madhya Pradesh

Orchha

Settled on the way to Khajuraho from heritage city of Jhansi in the central region of Madhya Pradesh, the sleepy and slumber town of Orchha is steeped in history. According to fable, Lord Ram, the legendary character from the ancient Ramayana Sanskrit, visited this place to honor the wish of his devotee who was the queen of Orchha. Interestingly, Lord Ram is still believed to visit Orchha for the evening prayer night sleep.

The evening Aarti at Raja Ram Temple in Orchha is globally acclaimed for its magnificence and grandeur.  The tales of raja Ram and many more are still sung about by local musicians and monks roaming in the town around the temples and river Betwa.
