Orchha Fort - Orchha, Madhya Pradesh - Part 1


Orchha, an ancient town in Madhya Pradesh on the banks of river Betwa, is one my favourite places. It was founded in the 15th century and has beautiful temples and tombs and grand forts and palaces. 


The Orchha fort is a huge structure consisting of many connecting palaces like the Raja Mahal and Jahangir Mahal which were built duing different periods.
