Temples and Mahals out in the Orchha countryside.

Taking a pleasant stroll to look around the Orchha countryside and spot more temples and mahals.

From the Fort walls on the Betwa River side these following small temples can be clearly seen dotted around out in the fields. There is a large Fort gate down on the left (which is worth taking a closer look at anyway) - go through the Fort Gate and turn left on the wide path. You are almost immediately out in the fields and now just follow the various tracks which go off to these temples - it is quite easy walking. You may well find some young children will turn up and offer to guide you round - we were taken round by four youngsters who chatted away and were fine - we were even diverted a little way to say "hello" to their mother. Of course they expected a small tip at the end (and got a pretty large one) but this was ok. To return back into Orcha village you do not need to walk up and through the fort, just go on past the Fort Gate and the path will take you back into town easily enough.

More beautiful Temples, The Group of Cenotaphs (Chhatris) and other Buildings which can be seen at Orchha in India.

The first photos are of the 14 memorials which are located alongside the Betwa River at Kanchan Ghat just on the southern edge of the town so quite easy to walk too. They belong to the Bundela Kings and their Rajput clan and are mostly three storey buildings with a variety of well-designed domes and pinnacles.

The last photo shown above is of a pair of wind catchers which provided air conditioning for the adjacent Palkhi Mahal. The two tall cooling towers were Persian style and are probably the only surviving example of such towers in India.
