History of Orchha

In Orchha the present fades into the shadows as history takes over with its tales of brave kings, luxurious palace and beautiful temples. The 11th century corresponds to the growth of Sultans and Bundelas were actually local chieftains who by their chivalry, political wisdom and prowess rose as noble kings. Initially they had their headquarters which were at a terrible height and hence the Mughals did not care for them. In the earlier part of the 16th century after the end of Lodi dynasty they began expanding their territory but they lost their territory to the Tughlaks. Therefore, Bundelas darted from place to place. After two decades Raja Rudra Pratap discovered an island enveloped by dense forest and Orchha was born.
