IT is part of the fort complex of Orchha and the biggest of all the mahal’s there. Do climb up for a nice view of the Orchha town and surrounding palace area and ofcourse the forest area near betwa river. Recommended!!

The design of the Mahal looks to be more Mughal than Bundela. Nice place to visit. There are too many stairs and those who have problem climbing the stairs, can go by car upto Sheesh Mahal and then can see part of the Mahal.

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.
