Orchha is a slumber yet intriguing town of Bundelkhand in Madhya Pradesh that can be best explored at an unhurried pace. We suggest that you hire a bicycle and take a ride alongside  its quiet and steep roads within the woods or countryside.

Or if you are in no mood to ride a bicycle, request a car drive at your hotel and  idle by the Betwa River on Kanchan Ghat which is only 10-min walk from the main town.  Watching the sun dropping behind the 14 chattris of the Bundelas that stand proudly alongside the river is an experience beyond mesmerizing.

cenotaphs-at-orchha10

These multi-level chhatris, open from 10.00 am to 05.00 pm, are built on high, square platforms, that you can climb to the top of via a narrow, roughly hewn staircase and enjoy a breathtaking view of the surroundings. These cenotaphs are larger than Rajput chhatris, and in spite of minimalistic detailed carvings or decorative flourishes, they attract the beholders for their massive structure.

Even after spending hours in the city of cenotaphs – Orchha you would realize that Orchha is the land of enigma—a kind of unpredictable land caught between legendary fictions and unbelievable facts. Here, on the boulder-strewn banks of the Betwa, the wildlife of Madhya Pradesh is fascinating, and the Gods come down to meet their devouts every evening.

It was a moment of rejoice when Orchha celebrated Paryatan Parv 2017 with great fervor and cultural events. Commendable enthusiasm was shown by the locals and artists from across the state who participated in the sports and cultural activities organized during the celebration of Paryatan Diwas! There was cycle rally, dance performances, local musical show, shopping, food stalls and a lot more. Moreover, several art and craft shops were decorated at the handicraft fair, which was organised by the tourism department in the cenotaph town of Bundelkhand.

Orchha is a less hyped heritage town on Jhansi-Khajuraho journey. Usually travelers are drawn to Orchha concluding on historical & artistic pursuits. The cenotaph town is a marvelous retreat for those seeking peaceful holiday destinations in India.

Magic of light on the heritage marvel’s of Orchha! Cenotaphs bordering River Betwa were all ignited in the glory of night for the Paryatan Parv 2017.
