THE GATEWAY TO BUNDELKHAND

JHANSI

Jhansi, a historic city situated between the rivers Pahunj and Betwa, owes its significance and popularity to its link with the heroics of Rani Laxmi Bai, the courageous queen who fought valiantly against the British in the Revolt of 1857. Jhansi was a stronghold of the ancient Chandela kings. The place used to be known as Balwant Nagar in those times. Jhansi lost its importance in the 11th century, only to rise to prominence again in the 17th century under Raja Bir Singh Deo of Orchha. In 1613, Raja Bir Singh Deo constructed the Jhansi Fort atop a rocky hill. The original walled city grew up around the Jhansi Fort.
