Explore the memorials dedicated to the town's historical kings at Chhatris Cenotaphs, which stand next to an ancient temple on the river Betwa.

Explore the ancient streets where time has stood still, and examine a total of fourteen cenotaphs built on spots where each royal was cremated. The most popular memorial, Vir Singh Deo, has a distinguishable design that attracts the majority of tourists.

  • Excellent Heritage, must see this place from Forest Resort on other side of river. Crossing river using old stone bridge on Betwa river
