When the Sun is playing hide and seek , flowers are in full bloom and the weather is just perfect when rain paints the entire Madhya Pradesh in emerald green, and offer relief to the parched landscapes, there’s no way you are sitting at home and doing nothing exciting.

It’s always exciting and fun to plan a weekend trip to Orchha around major holidays. The year 2017 is the rewarding year when it comes to  travelling and we have amazing weekend inspirations in Orchha- the hidden land, planned perfectly for you!

  1. Less Touristy
    Orchha, the serene town has existed since the 15th century and has numerous monuments 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 during long weekend runs.

  2.  Impressive Architecture
    Looking at 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 other states of India.

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.

jahangir mahal

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.
