Amar Mahal

Amar Mahal

, Madhya Pradesh
, India

Amar Mahal overlooks the magnificent cenotaphs and the gurgling river Betwa in Orchha. The Old palace in Orchha, which still stands high depicting the tales of Bundela era, was once witness to the grand royal stories. The present retreat is an addition to the old world charm that dates back to 1895. The architecture of Amar Mahal is built like the Rajput house of Bundelkhand. It is a great option for those wishing to experience the historical and natural splendour of Orchha, which are less than a kilometre away from the hotel.

Orchha literally meaning Hidden. It 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 was an ideal site for the king`s capital. Marked by temples, huge cenotaphs (chhatri) and striking forts, the capital of Bundela Kingdom has beautifully preserved the spirit of its illustrious past and breathes history in every detail. Those who are not fascinated by history, will be fascinated by the sheer natural beauty of the surrounds. Encompassed by thick Dhak forest where every dawn is embraced by chirping of birds, where the shimmering holy river and the sighting of rare Indian Vultures atop the rooftops of palaces and cenotaphs add to the picturesque ambience, the destination appears like a sweet reverie.
