4.4/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • An extraordinary building but shocking that Jehamgir may never have even have stayed one night in this exquisite palace. 
  • It was the first House we visited in the living room for Orchha and definitely worth visiting it in all its Majesty, though, you have to climb many steep steps arranged in three levels and circumnavigate the building from all sides to enjoy wonderful views of the river and across the city. The building is not well maintained but the absence of tourists makes the visit quite impressive. If there are local guides (in English) that are offered for an explanation of the story.
