Jhansi Fort, Jhansi
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.
