Historic Site Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Jhansi Fort represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Jhansi family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • One of the amazing forts of India. The fort covering approximate area of 5 acre and is located in the center of the Jhansi City. The view is amazing from top. History addicted should visit atleast once. There is an entry fee of Rs.15/- for Indian nationals. There are two temples inside the fort. Few small and big cannons are placed showing the strength of the fort. One can take help of a local guide to know the history behind the fort at an affordable charge. Convenient to reach as it is only 4.5 kms far from Jhansi Railway Station. One can find local vehicles to reach there.
  • Avoid hot and sunny summer days Take guide available inside he knows the place and history very well takes 2-3 hours to explore the place
  • Fort is very beautiful. One must see the spot from where the Jhansi ki Rani jumped off the fort to protect herself and her child.
  • One of the best fort I visited, good facility, and specially at evening time they arrange short show about rani laxmibai,awesome feeling.
  • Historical and beautiful structure. Nice view of Jhansi from the top of this Fort. Jhansi's 1st tourist destination in my opinion. Unexplainable moment to visit here. Everyone should visit if they can. Love this place and Jhansi city.
