Jahangir Mahal, Orchha

4.5
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Orchha
Witness one of the most vivid examples of 17th-century Mughal architecture at Jahangir Mahal, built to honor Prince Jahangir's visit to Orchha. In addition to an abundance of hanging balconies, porches, and apartments, the majestic three-story citadel features three domed towers--built according to Timurid traditions, they are large enough to accommodate war elephants. You can easily spot the citadel from miles away; once up close, you can spy monkeys resting on its walls. Hire a local guide to give you a full experience of this well-maintained, richly historical attraction.

  • Just 1 km from the Orccha resort hotel is this beautiful palace of Jahangier built around 1600.What a splendor and pomp should not have been this but like many buildings they are totally neglected in India.Especially few tourists see outside large Indian families who come to visit and all too much like to take a picture with you,fun.

  • At the top you have a beautiful view over the entire surroundings. Average: apart from the view no separate beautiful things to see

  • This palace is amazing 💛 right from the architecture to its history, I am sure that whoever visits this place will be in awe of it! If you are a historical architecture buff then this palace is a MUST VISIT! Make sure you get a guide to know about the history behind this beauty. If you are planning to visit Orcchha, then monsoon is the best season, the lush greenery and fresh air will make you feel alive. 😊
  • If you love to visit the fort than i can say that this fort is much beautiful than the Jhansi and Gwalior fort. Views of this fort is so good. If you love the light show than you should visit there in evening. But views of tomb and outside river can only be see in daylight.
