Orchha was founded in the 16th century on banks of river Betwa. On one side of the river is the
Orccha city and the other side is the Teekam Garrh Forest range. The city is famous for the temple of
‘Raja Ram’. The city of Orchha consists of severa
severall buildings mostly constructed at the time of Bir
Singh Ju Deo( 1605-1627) who built the exquisite Jahangir Mahal\Hardaul Mandir and Chatturbhuj
Temple. This beautiful place is just 18 km away from Jhansi.
Datia is the ancient town which is situated at a distance of about 20 km. from Jhansi. It has been
mentioned in Mahabharat as ‘Daityavakra’. Datia is famous as a pilgrimage spot for devotees of
Siddhapeeth ‘Shri Peetambra Devi’. The other historic monument at Datia is the seven storied palace
of Raja Bir Singh Judeo built on the top of hill with splendid view all around.
Sonagiri 10 kms form Datia and 30 Kms from Jhansi. It is known as place of jain temples. There are
around 77 jain temples builtt along the hill and its slopes in 17th century.
Shivpuri; The Tiger Land
Shivpuri is widely known for its Madhav National park which covers an area of 156 sq. km. and has a
varied terrain of wooded hills which offers an abundant opportunity for sighting a variety of wildlife.
The predominant species in the park is the deer, of which offers an abundant opportunity of sighting
a variety of wildlife. The predominant species in the park is the deer, of which the most easily sighted
are the graceful Chinkaras
hinkaras and the Chitals, other important species being, Nilgai, Sambar, Chausigha,
Blackbuck, Sloth Bear, Leopard and Langur. At one time Shivpuri was the summer capital of the
Scindia, rulers of Gwalior. It is around 10
100km away from Jhansi, located on Jhansi-Kota
Chitrakoot is the celebrated pilgrimage town which is located on the northern spur of the Vindhyas.
It has various mythological tales attached to it. It was the abode of lord Rama and Sita for eleven
years when in exile. This holy city, the abode of the gods, is set in sylvan surroundings on the
beautiful River Mandakini. It is dotted with innumerable temples and shrines today. The places of
Tourist interest are Gupt Godavari, Sati Anusuya, Sphatik Shila, Janki Kund, Hanuman Dhara,
Kamadgiri, Ram Ghat. Chitrakoot is around 200 Kms from Jhansi.
Khajuraho or ancient "khajurvahaka" derives its name from the khajur tree (the date palm tree),
which abounds in plenty in this region. This quiet sylvan retreat seems to have been an ideal
religious sanctuary nestling in the lap of the Vindhya Mountains. The place, if pictures speak, is a
thousand words, a magnum opus, an expression of Indian sculptures of yore. The founder of the
Chandela dynasty Nannuka or Chandravarman constructed 85 temples dedicated to various gods on
massive altars. These form the pride of Khajuraho even ten centuries later, making it a picturesque
sight of architectural miracles and one wonders as to how the mortal minds and hands could have
conceived and executed these fantasies on stone. The murals and motifs depict scenes from hunting,
feasting, dancing and stress on the sensual and the erotic. Khajuraho is around 170 kms form Jhansi.
Situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior is the city of true royals, the Scindhias. City is well
known for its majestic fort, considered as one of the best in the world. Gwalior is located at a distance

The nucleus of Gwalior is a citadel crowning an isolated rock about 91 m (300 ft) high, 3.2 km (2 mi)
long, and 823 m (2700 ft) wide. The rock is said to have been a strong hold for more than Ten
Centuries and Old city is located in the Eastern base of the rock. The old city is covered with white
sandstone Mosque, Palaces, rock temples and statues of archaeological and architectural interest. The
Jiwaji University was built in Gwalior in the year 1964. Gwalior City was the Capital of the princely
State of Gwalior until 1948 and the summer Capital of Madhya Bharat State from 1948 to 1956. With
different Dynasty, the city gained a new dimension from the warrior kings, poets, musicians, and
saints who contributed to making it renowned throughout the country. The city is also the setting for
the memorials of freedom fighters such as Tatya Tope and the indomitable Rani of Jhansi.
The Taj Mahal, Agra
Sheer poetry in marble. Majesty and magnificence, unrivalled. You've seen it often enough, you
think. That glossy white marble building adorning a million brochures, pamphlets and posters. Be
warned. Nothing can prepare you for your first sighting of the building. The Taj Mahal, the one and
only one of its kind across the world. The monumental labour of love of a great ruler for his beloved
queen. The ultimate realization of Emperor Shahjahan's dream. One of the wonders of the world.
From 1631 A.D., it took 22 years in the making. An estimated 20,000 people worked to complete the
enchanting mausoleum, on the banks of the Yamuna. For a breathtaking beautiful view of the Taj
Mahal, see it by moonlight.
