Intriguing legends around royal families are always infused with romance and grandeur and here in Orchha is our own Salim Anarkali story, although this is no tragedy. The romance between a courtesan of Orchha – Rai Praveen and the king of Bundelkhand Indrajit became lore in the poems of poet Keshav Das. An often heard tale narrates how the more powerful ruler Akbar wanted her in his harem against the wishes of the king. But the courtesan with all her wit spoke her way out of Akbar’s heart that he sent her back to Orchha safe. It is believed that she apparently thwarted the Mughal emperor by saying, “It’s only a royal servant or a dog or a crow, who would like to eat something that has already been polluted by another.” Touched by her loyalty towards her paramour, Akbar decided to restore Rai Parveen to Orchha with both her dignity and that of her kingdom intact. The palace was built by emperor Akbar, is now a fitting memorial to this lady.

Rai Praveen Mahal is an exemplary citadel of wonderful architecture encompassed by nature’s beauty.  A lush garden, with shrubs and flowerbeds pruned in very many artistic shapes, surrounds the palace. Since the palace was built in honor of the ‘Nightingale of Orchha’, Rai Praveen, its second floor is resplendent with scenes of Nritya Mudra, the poses and postures of Indian dance.

The fort also has a cannon foundry which kept a vigil round the clock, guarding against any exterior threat from the enemies of Orchha.

The Rai Praveen Mahal is beautifully maintained for tourism purpose in Orchha. Palace’s exterior and interior both is truly commendable. Moreover, the tourists can enjoy the scenic beauty of the area surrounding the Palace from the roof as well as upper floors. Rai Praveen Mahal is a key monument of 16th Century, which also offers a visual treat of fascinating architecture and paintings to the visitors.  One of the edges of Rai Praveen Mahal also offers to gaze at the stunning view of River Betwa.

The first and foremost thing any travel lover does in the beginning of New Year is chalking out the weekends and holidays and planning for the holiday trips! It’s so much exciting and fun to plan a long weekend getaway around a major holiday like the Independence Day and Raksha Bandhan in August. 2016 is an exciting year in terms of travelling and we have extended weekends, in Orchha- the hidden land, planned perfectly for you!

You can reach Orchha while returning to Jhansi from Khajuraho, as a detour.

Orchha location

IMG_3060

This beautiful slumber town has existed since the 1500’s and has plethora of temples strewn about. Although Orchha is one of the most impressive sites in India that are commonly visited by Korean travelers but still there are not many tourists to crowd the place.

orchha fort

Considering the tremendously handsome fort, the hidden town of Orchha is a destination not to be missed, especially in Monsoon. The green bed of lush fauna complements each architectural building in Orchha. The Jahangir Mahal, in particular, is definitely worth exploring and in many ways just as impressive as any palace in Rajasthan.

Orchha

Chaturbhuj Temple, which was initially built for Lord Ram, is also unique–a vast cathedral-like Hindu temple with an imposing high roof with a good view.

IMG_3383

Like Khajuraho, Orchha is also pleasantly rural, and less tourist oriented to boot. Ideally, Orchha is a delightful base for village, countryside walks and bicycle.

River Betwa and Cenotaphs

For the breathtaking cenotaphs bordering River Betwa, mesmerizing temple structures and the impressive Fort, Orchha is that one destination one could most easily imagine visiting repeatedly on long weekends.
