Jehangir Mahal, Orchha
(4.5/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Witness one of the most vivid examples of 17th-century Mughal architecture at Jehangir Mahal, built to honor Prince Jahangir's visit to Orchha. 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. Hire a local guide to give you a full experience of this well-maintained, richly historical attraction. By using our Orchha itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Jehangir Mahal and other attractions in Orchha.

  • A must visit fort. The Mahal was built to honor King jehangir and thats how it got its name.The restoration work is in progress. 
  • We were a couple hours early for our train in Jhansi, and our taxi driver suggested this out of the way spot. What a surprise. This fabulous Palace from the 17th century rulers is a wondrous adventure...  more »
  • This is quite near the betwa river and a guide would be needed to explain the complex of rooms and a brief history of the frescoes on the walls .
