About Rani Mahal
The intricate carvings and majestic paintings in the Rani Mahal speak the splendour of the bygone era. The palace, built by Raghu Nath II of Newalkar family, was once the royal quarters for the wife of Raja Madhukar Singh and witnessed Rani Laxmi Bai as its last occupant. The insides of the palace are adorned by beautiful artefacts which illustrate the holy epic Ramayana.
The palace is surrounded by picturesque gardens and built against the backdrop of the vibrant River Betwa. The palace is now converted into a museum which houses paintings and scriptures, adding value to the places to visit in Orchha. The astounding architecture of the palace makes it one of the most attractive structures in the fort complex.
