Orchha : a region of historical architecture and massive cenotaphs

A small hidden town in Madhya Pradesh, Orchha is known to be frozen in time. The town’s palaces and temples still maintain their original grandeur. The Bundela Rajput chieftain, Rudra Pratap, founded the city, located by the side of the splendid Betwa River, in 16th century. The word Orchha means ‘hidden’. When the Tughlaqs, who were ruling Delhi in the 15th century, pushed the Bundelkhand rajas out of Garkhundar, they retreated to distant Orchha.

The main attraction of Orchha is the Orchha fort complex, located on an island on River Betwa. A four-arched bridge leads to the fort complex on the island. The Jahangir Mahal, which was built by Bir Singh Deo in the early part of the 17th century to mark the visit of the Mughal Emperor, is a prime monument of this fort. The Rai Parveen Mahal, dedicated to a 17th century poetess-musician, is the must-visit palace within this complex as it is set amongst well-laid gardens.
