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.
