Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Majestic Palace built just for a visit of the emperor. Notable frescoes and really lovely view tek forest all around. One of the many small large jewelry that India can offer its visitors.

  • Seek a guide in Spanish (in our case) that there are and they are very good. But there are innumerable details that are lost.

  • Orchha fort is is antiquity at top in the eponymous village. If you're here it's worth a visit. To only come here specially for the fort to be going too far but as part of a visit to Orchha it is well worth the effort. A historic backdrop for a film from Roman times it seems.
