Gallery: Orchha, India

I visited Orccha for one night on my way from Alipura to Varanasi. It’s a pretty small town, but it’s littered with beautiful monuments and is well worth a visit. The Orchha fort complex, which is probably the main tourist draw, is made up of a large number of ancient monuments including the fort and several palaces. There are also numerous cenotaphs, chhatris, temples and tombs dotted around the town and along the Betwa River.
