Heritage Hotels

Orchha

The townscape of Orchha is dotted with many massive old temples and monuments dedicated to forgotten rulers that would’ve been marvelled by flocks of tourists elsewhere. But as Orchha is still hidden from the commercial tourism, the quaint town enjoys serenity and provides solace to the visitors.

A walking tour of Orchha is the best option to enjoy a close look into its deep rooted heritage and mind blowing legends.

Orchha

The heritage buildings are not just huge but also represent a remarkable example of great craftsmanship of the era with decorated ornate architecture. The huge cenotaphs and palaces exude a vernacular and distinctive character. Most of those are mysteriously abandoned yet mesmeric to see. They are largely empty inside, but safe for the echoes of locals chanting prayers and the occasional wandering traveller.

The most attractive places in Orchha which you may fall for would be the Chaturbhuj Temple,  Jahangir Mahal and Laxmi Narayan Temple. The Chaturbhuj Temple, especially,  appears more like a fortress and dominates the whole town with its towering spires.

If you are searching for an off beaten track for the upcoming long weekend then your search for that off the beaten path destination ends here. Because we are taking you to the path, which would led you deep into the splendid countryside of India called Orchha. If you have ever heard of Khajuraho, this terrific hidden town can be reached after an overnight at Khajuraho.

As you reach Orchha you’ll find yourself immersed into the alluring charms of Bundelkhand situated in Madhya Pradesh State of Central India.

River Betwa and Cenotaphs

Orchha in the local tongue literally meant “hidden place.” Indeed, it is. This is one splendid heritage town where you’ll feel that you had made it to the “real” side of rural India the most.

Local pilgrims that too in mesmeric building structures fill the town, a handful of other tourists will be around at the time, and no pushy touts lurking at every street corner, will make your visit to this beautiful town on the banks of River Betwa a memorable one.
