  • If you came to Orchhu to visit the cenotaphs. I don't know why, but remembering the journey through India immediately come to mind precisely cenotaphs, though per month visited many nice places. Visit, will not be disappointed. By the way, local why did not know the name Cenotaph, so when asked to them the way local did astonished eyes. Although what is found in the Orchha problems is not close.
