In addition to an abundance of hanging balconies, porches, and apartments, the majestic three-story citadel features three domed towers--built according to Timurid traditions, they are large enough to accommodate war elephants. You can easily spot the citadel from miles away; once up close, you can spy monkeys resting on its walls.

  • Jahangir Mahal Palace classic Islamic architecture was built in the 17 century Mughal's Emperor Jahangir, who later stayed here just for one night. The Windows of the first floor overlook the courtyard, only balconies with grills starting from the second floor, and only the third tier has open balconies. Elegantly decorated entrance, on the sides of which the elephants. In the courtyard swimming pool. Most of the doors in the courtyard under lock and key. On the second floor you can climb sole on the open stairs. At the top you can see the tiles that had previously adorned the Palace. If you climb to the top, then you will have a stunning view of the city. Just be careful, steep stairs.

  • It is very good fort for travellers who want to visit orchha ... The king of orchha named this fort jahangir mahal because at that time the mugal emperor jahangir was coming here only for one day so the king of orchha made this for showing the friendship and respect between mugals and bundela but unfortunately the king of delhi jahangir hasn't been here.... Travellers can easily find the mixture of indian and mugal arts in this fort ....
  • Beautiful entry gate, and the chajja architecture which includes elephant are very fine work of art. The main highlight is inlay work at ceiling
  • I was there at evening. Nice place. And not much rush was there.
  • Beautiful old palace, located by the river, nice view from the top
  • Great historical place. Good for tour
