At Orchha, 120 km from Gwalior, grandeur is captured in stone. The palaces and temples built by its Bundela rulers in 16th and 17th centuries, still retain much of their pristine perfection. Orchha is a town in Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh state, India. The town was established by Rudra Pratap Singh some time after 1501, as the seat of an eponymous former princely state of central India, in the Bundelkhand region. Situated on the Delhi-Chennai main line, Datia is mentioned in the Mahabharata as 'Daityavakra'. Among its main historical monuments are seven-storey palace of Raja Bir Singh Deo, built atop a hill, a temple with Mughal frescoes and Gopeshwar temple.
