O

rchha, literally meaning `Hidden` is an ancient medieval

town which was founded in 16th century by the Bundela

Rajput chieftain, Rudra Pratap. This stretch of land along

the River Betwa in Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh was an

beauty lining the riverbank and within the medieval city.

Easily added to any Rajasthan itinerary, or as a handy stopover to

Khajuraho, and in easy striking distance of Delhi it is also home to

one of India’s most impressive “Heritage” hotels. Built in the

traditional style echoing the domes of Orchha's temples and palaces

Amar Mahal is set amongst beautifully manicured gardens. Dripping

in regal history, this privately owned heritage hotel overlooks the

Betwa river and the cenotaphs of Orchha. Rooms are spacious and

beautifully designed; decked with traditional art works and antique

furnishings. With its fine dining options and relaxing pool, this
