Walk on thick walls and explore the towers of Jhansi Fort, a fortress perched on a hilltop. Once a stronghold of the Chandela Kings between the 11th and the 17th century, the current fortress features 4.8-6 m (16-20 ft) think granite walls fortified in 1613 and ten impressive gates with carved ornaments. Spanning over 6 hectares (15 acres), the fort has a large water tank and a museum with fine sculptures testifying to its former grandeur and valor. A small shrine and a large muzzle-loading canon stand on display in the yard. Check out the spot from which heroine Rani of Jhansi jumped off the wall on horseback and survived to avoid capture by the British during the rebellion in 1857.

  • Located on top of hill at centre of city. Railway station, bus station, hotel, hospital, market etc. Everything is under 2 km radius. Ample parking space. Lots of local food shops there. Entry and parking is chargeable. Open till evening 5PM
  • A very well maintained monument. The scale of this fort is quite modest in comparison to other forts of same era in north India. However, the way this fort has been maintained makes it worthy of a visit. This place is especially suitable for family groups with young kids and elderly members as they can easily explore the fort without getting exhausted.
