Chhatris Cenotaphs - Review
Located within the Orchha Fort Complex but at a short walking distance, these magnificent Chhatris are umbrella-shaped structures dedicated to the various rulers of Orchha. Standing peacefully along the banks of Betwa River, these cenotaphs belong to the 18th and 19th century. Displaying beautiful architecture through its 14 different cenotaphs dedicated to 14 different rulers, you can admire them from outside or enter it using your ticket of the Orccha fort. The gardens are great for a stroll and you can observe the Chhatri dedicated to Bir Singh, an ally of Salim (Emperor Akbar’s son) which has a strong Mughal influence in its construction.

Chhatris Cenotaphs, Orachha Reviews
There are fourteen 'Chatries' or memorials to the rulers of Orchha, grouped along the Kanchana Ghat of the river Betwa. They were built around 17th centuries. The Chattris or Cenotaphs were built to honour the dead ancestors of the Bundela rajas. Amazing architecture to view and good place for photography.
Please visit one time in your life.....this is amazing historical palace garden and river side ..... Splendor....place...
Best place to hang out in orchha. Very clean and betwa river make it more beautiful.
One of my highlights of visiting Orchha is always photographing the royal chhatris which were built near the banks of the river Betwa. The price of entry into the Chatris in included in the ticket price of the Jahangir Mahal, and so a must visit. On my last visit to the Chhatris, I went late in the afternoon just as the sun was about to set, it allowed for some nice photography. The gardens are well kept and there were no touts about trying to sell you things, just a few other visitors. Do try to photograph them from the bridge at sunset (I've included a photo of this lovely moment in my review/profile).
