Landmark Tourist Spot
Explore the memorials dedicated to the town's historical kings at Chhatris Cenotaphs, which stand next to an ancient temple on the river Betwa. Constructed between the 17th and 18th century in the regional Bundelkhand architectural style, these highly ornamented cenotaphs represent triple-storied tombs with temple-like features. 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.
