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 know only of monuments built by the Mughals. Capital city of valiant Bundela kingdom deserves better treatment.

The fort was built in 1501 AD by Rudra Pratap Singh, a Bundela rajput. Walking along the stone bridge across the moat, we find ourselves inside the fort. Here are preserved several palaces - Raja Mahal or Raja Mandir, Sheesh Mahal, Jahangir Mahal, temples and gardens. Inside the fort, in one of the ancient palaces MPTDC opened the Hotel Sheesh Mahal.
The fort is small, but in good condition. The best view of the fort from the entrance to Chaturbhuj Mandir.

It's a good old fort, you will find monkeys here, Entry ticket is just INR 10 for Indians, good place to visit you will find too many foreigners here,

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.
