#1 of 9 in Things to do in Jhansi
Walk on thick walls and explore the towers of Jhansi Fort, a fortress perched on a hilltop. Once a stronghold of the Chandela Kings between the 11th and the 17th century, the current fortress features 4.8-6 m (16-20 ft) think granite walls fortified in 1613 and ten impressive gates with carved ornaments. Spanning over 6 hectares (15 acres), the fort has a large water tank and a museum with fine sculptures testifying to its former grandeur and valor. A small shrine and a large muzzle-loading canon stand on display in the yard. Check out the spot from which heroine Rani of Jhansi jumped off the wall on horseback and survived to avoid capture by the British during the rebellion in 1857.

  • Nice place to visit in groups. Though it has lesser stretch, it has more historic importance. Roughly 4 Km from Jhansi Jn. Almost the entire town can be seen from the fort. Best location for a single day getaways. Best if visited in the morning or evening times. I would suggest visiting Jhansi fort in February-April is a great option.
  • The fort lies at the heart of the city. It carries in its walls a monumental saga of the freedom struggle of princely states of India. The different construction materials tell how it was taken over and built upon. The wide open spaces show the splendour in which a whole community of people lived in it, be it frolicking or practising combat. The hidden passages tell tales of the ingenuity of those that built it. If that doesn’t do it for you, there is a light and sound show that brings to life these majestic walls and unfolds their story. Wonderful experience!
  • The fort in itself is pretty ordinary. But it's on a good location, and the view from atop is impressive. Plus the sign which depicts the place from where Rani Laxmibai jumped on horseback indeed adds to the historical importance and gives goosebumps as you try to recreate the entire scenario. Recommended if you have plans in the vicinity. Not exactly a place worth visiting 'exclusively'.
  • It's a good place. You can have a 360 degree view of the city. Quiet near railway station and should not take more than 100 rupees to reach there. For is open and big , a good place to hangout as well. Tickets cost 15 rupees and can be purchased separately from the counter.
  • Good Fort but not properly maintained Park also available inside so a small family outing can be done.. Parking area available but kind of small area. Water and washrooms available No food stores inside the fort No food allowed inside either...full of monkeys so avoid Guides irritates you but if you want to know the history in detail use one Tickets 15 rs per person indian International tourist 150rs/person
