(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Filled with ancient monuments dating back to the 16th century, Orchha Fort is a beautiful yet small town brimming with temples, palaces, gardens, and pavilions. Expect to enter the complex through an arched causeway, keeping your eyes peeled for battlements along the fort walls. Once inside, find yourself in an open space surrounded by palaces decorated with projected balconies and latticed windows. Do not miss the Raja Mahal, the elaborate structure where royalty lived up until the 18th century. Remember to wear good walking shoes to help with all the exploring and climbing you'll do at this attraction. Make Orchha Fort a part of your Orchha vacation plans using our Orchha itinerary maker.
