The town of Orchha is considered to be Madhya Pradesh’s big draw, graced with medieval style architecture dating from the start of 16th century. Established as the capital of Bundelkhand by Rudra Pratap Singh, a Bundela chief in 1501 A.D., Orchha carries the imprints of all former rulers, who ruled the city at different points in history. Far removed from the centers of modernity, the area around is full of chances to explore the outdoors. You can strike out towards seeing the palaces and temples, or there are some beautiful gardens like Phool Bagh, within easy reach. Being a less crowded region, Orchha’s air and water are relatively clear, as a result, it makes for a great city break. Outside the peak season, you may be the only person enjoying rafting in the Betwa River.
