Jhansi Fort

ONE OF THE MAIN CENTRES OF THE MUTINY OF 1857

JHANSI FORT

Jhansi  Fort  was built by King Bir Singh Judeo of Orchha  in the  17th Century, on top of a hill as an army stronghold. This  fort  played  a  very  important  role  in the  revolution of  1857 and  has been a witness to the fiery battle led by Rani Laxmi Bai. There are temples of Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha within the fort. The Karak Bijli and Bhawani Shankar cannon of the queen are also kept inside the fort. There is also a museum which has a collection of sculpture and provides an insight into the history of Bundelkhand. Below the walls of the fort is a depiction in the form of diorama, the bloody battle in which Rani of Jhansi gave her life to save her people from the hands of the British.
