About Orchha

Orchha the tiny town in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh has an abundance of history in every square and corner. Nestled on the banks of river Betwa, Orchha was founded in the 16th century by the Bundela Rajput Chief, Rudra Pratap. The ancient town seems to have frozen in time the monuments here still restore the historic touch to take back the tourists back in time.

So those who are an ardent lover of history and nature then Orchha is the destination where you should head to, as here only one can experience the rich history, where you can be the spectator of magnificent palaces, forts and dwell back into medieval era completely.

It’s here on the land of Orccha, Ram Raja temple is the only place where Lord Rama is worshipped both as a king and god. Not just that, the Laxmi Narayan temple exhibits the unique architectural style, which is a mix of the fort and a temple both. Also, the Jahangir Mahal was built in the honour of Mughal emperor Jahangir. Thus there is nothing that will take you away from history.

Moreover, the significance of the architecture and construction has its own significance, the famous Chattris of Orccha are cenotaphs, which were constructed in the honour of erstwhile rulers.
