Chattris are small piece of temple structured building. They are situated near the Betwa River side. They were being renovated during my visit in June 2017. There is nothing much to discouver, they are stinky and not well maintained.

Very clean and well-maintained place

The Chhatris are well-maintained and the garden is very beautiful. The cleanliness is of the highest order and a good place to spend around an hour relaxing and getting calm.

It is situated at some elevation near Betwa River

It was the recreation time, you won't get anything near it, just enjoy the riverside. This marvel is alive and vivid. Tomb of Maharajas is what we know as Chattris.

A sight never seen before!

The moment I opened the door of my room, they were all there! I have never seen something like this before! They were a historic marvel, so vivid and alive. Information:1. They open around 8:00 am in the morning and one has to purchase the entry tickets from the Orchha fort ticket counter.2. Best time to visit is in the evening before the sun is setting as one can see the beautiful silhouette of the structures on the back drop of the setting sun, very picturesque and amusing!3. Best time to visit is from November to February when the temperature is cool.
