Ochha, literally means ‘hidden place’, which is quite apt considering its location. Situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, it seems almost isolated on the Betwa River. The historic town was founded in the 16th century by the Bundela Rajput Chief, Rudra Pratap. The ancient town seems frozen in time, with its many monuments continuing to retain their original grandeur even to this day. The Orchha fort complex is the biggest tourist draw of this small town. You can buy a ticket here that will grant you access to all the sights in the town. The fort complex itself is divided into three parts, the Raj Mahal, Jahangir Mahal and the Rai Praveen Mahal. The center of Orchha is the Ram Raja temple whose presiding deity is Lord Rama whose idol was supposed to be installed in the magnificent Chaturbhuj temple. Legend has it that the idols refused to move after being installed here and so a temple was built around them! Orchha also has 14 cenotaphs or chhatris that serve as memorials to its rulers and the well laid-out garden, aptly called Phool Bagh.
