Introducing Jhansi

This nondescript town is in fact in Uttar Pradesh. The town is famous for its link to the Rani of Jhansi, a key player in the 1857 War of Independence, and it is commonly used as a gateway to Orchha, Khajuraho and Gwalior. If you're here, check out Jhansi Fort, built in 1613 by Maharaja Bir Singh Deo of Orchha.

Madhya Pradesh Tourism has an information centre on Platform 1 at the train station, which can make real-time hotel reservations in Khajuraho and Orchha.
