se tem algumas horas sobrando em jhansi, vale a pena a vista, senão pelo forte, pela bela vista que tem da cidade e arredores. more »if you have a few hours left in jhansi, it is worth the view, if not by the fort, for the beautiful view that has the city and surroundings.
Old Structure. Well Maintained. You can spend good amount of time on the top of fort. There are basement rooms where secret meeting used to happen. more »
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.
