The most popular memorial, Vir Singh Deo, has a distinguishable design that attracts the majority of tourists.

  • 坐在河边的石头上,看着碧青的急湍河水,远处的石桥,远处的古建筑,天边的夕阳,留下了北印的一声惊叹,什么都不必做,安静的看夕阳西下,当然凭门票去里面拍照也不错,还有鹦鹉和秃鹫,建筑的色调很有历史感觉,比古堡和宫殿更能醉人,一个看门老先生,当日门票签字,蛮和气,人也不多。  more »
  • Definitely You should visit it during dusk! Especially pay attention to shiva lingam. Whole picture - cenotaphs, shiva lingum and red sun look epic  more »
  • Visited the cenotaphs late afternoon and the view was striking at sunset. Herds of goats and buffalo making their way home added to the scene. Quite spectacular.  more »

  • When in Orchha, the Chhatris are definitely a must see! The surrounding gardens are well maintained and look particularly stunning!
