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.

  • One of the greatest warrior queen of India's Jhansi Fort is literally falling apart. The fort has so much history to tell, however less said about maintainance, the better. Plastering and stones need ...  more »

  • Loved the place.. Its beautiful.. There is still scope of a lot of maintainance.. Its smells urine all over.. Its a historic place and should be conserved with proper care. I also appeal the people from desisting from such activities. We all have to come forward to secure our history. Any how u can easily spend 2 hours here.. Entry fee is Rs.15 for Indians and Rs. 200 for other nationals..
  • 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!
  • A must visit while in Jhansi! With the very first step you enter the era of female valour and courage. Do take a guide along as he will add to the ecstasy. The train station is only 10 minutes away by auto ride and so again, highly recommended for visit!
  • 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'.
