The Orchha Fort is about 475 years old and provides a peeping window into the opulent and lofty lifestyle of the royals. The architecture is absolutely marvelous, one wonders as to how such gigantic structures were made without machinery, cranes etc.

The fort complex and other monuments of Orchha built by Bundela Kings over time are relatively well preserved and worth visiting. This place deserve to be promoted as a complete heritage destination instead of a satellite visit alongside Khajuraho. People visiting north and central India...More

If in Orchha, then save a little time to visit its Fort and get lost in the narrow corridors and many windows. Also to get some rest and shadow. Enjoy great view of the city, river and other temples.

A great place for views of the surrounding area. Also some very wonderful, still intact paintings from the 16th century which is rare in these old forts.

The Raj Mahal is a very large and impressive building. Take your time to stroll around and explore the corridors, walkways and roofs. Don't miss the fascinating paintings in the rooms and halls of the ground floor.
