  • Great views at sunset from across the bridge but beware crazy two-wheelers! I didn't really get the point but the garden was nice 
  • It's amazing the Hindu and Mughal styles on the banks of the Betwa is a mix of graves (Cenotaphs), Bundela King appears as a respect to the dead horse of markings. Orchha was built for each governing the Bundela King, 15 Graves. Most have a superior workmanship, designed in the style of King Tombs Panchayatana Bundela. A centralized platform consists of a square on the elevated House-like structure. The most sacred place, the central square and is in full. The angular arched at the top has been made and the sacred is embellished with watchtower. Now, it's guard tower is home to the vultures.

  • All cenotaphe can be visited with your entry fort ticket. But there no more to see inside : only gardens are well maintened. Staying around is enough. 
  • When in Orchha, the Chhatris are definitely a must see! The surrounding gardens are well maintained and look particularly stunning!
