The place is like a maze across 3 levels with narrow and steep steps. The Jahangir mahal is very artistic and hosts great paintings. They also have... More

This palace was suppose to have been built in the honor of Jehangirs visit to Orchha. Very beautiful architecture a mix of Indian and Islamic style. The four bastions at the four corners with domes are really beautiful.

Or may be in hindsight I might have to say that two days were too less !!! An... More

This fort or mahal was built for Jahangir's stay for a night. Lovely to go though the entire complex especially at the top levels. Must visit. Part of fort complex It apparently take upto 20 years to build and was built to exercise the tax of the state.

Jehangir Mahal: Built by Raja Bir Singh Ju Deo in the 17th century to commemorate the visit of Emperor Jehangir to Orchha. Its strong lines are counterbalanced by delicate chhatris and trellis work, the whole conveying an effect of extraordinary richness.

If you are interested in and awed by Indian historic architecture then do come and visit this place. The setting, the lovely views inside and outside as well as the imagined court life are just great.

This old palace in Orchha is a great place to visit if you are in the area or driving on to Khajuraho...the tiered palace has some unique features and is worth the stop.

After exploring Orchha Fort we walked across to Jahangir Mahal, here we spent time viewing the amazing paintings on the ceiling. I am afraid without strategic preservation and restoration works this amazing art work will sadly fade away.
