Orchha State was founded in 1501 AD by the Bundela chief, Rudra Pratap Singh, who became its first king. He reigned between 1501-1531, during which time he built the fort at what is now the town of Orchha, on the banks of the river Betwa. He moved his capital from Garhkundar to that town in 1531 and died in the same year.
Rudra Pratap Singh was succeeded by his son, Bharatichand, who died without leaving an heir in 1554 and was in turn succeeded by his younger brother, Madhukar Shah. Both Bharatichand and Madhukar had to deal with attacks, organised under the Afghan Islam Shah Suri (r. 1545-53) and the Mughal Akbar (r. 1556-1605). Events involving the former were noted by the court poet Keshavdas and those involving Madhukar, who had to relinquish lands to Akbar in 1577 and 1588, were recorded in the Akbarnama. Madhukar's position had become so precarious in the 1570s that he agreed to Orchha becoming a tributary state and to enlistment of himself and his family in the service of the Mughal empire, but another near-contemporary historian, `Abd al-Qadir Bada'uni, records him as a rebel in 1583.
During the rule of the Mughal emperor Jahangir, his vassal, Vir Singh Deo, was ruler of the Orchha area. His reign ended in either 1626 or 1627 and it was during this period that Orchha reaches its height, and many extant palaces are a reminder of its architectural glory, including the Jahangir Mahal (built ca. 1605) and Sawan Bhadon Mahal.
In the early-17th century, Raja Jhujhar Singh rebelled against the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, whose armies devastated the state and occupied Orchha from 1635 to 1641. In that latter year, the conquerors installed the former raja's brother on the throne. Orchha was the only Bundela state not entirely subjugated by the Marathas in the 18th century.
The town of Tehri, Tikamgarh, about 52 miles (84 km) south of Orchha, became the capital of Orchha state in 1783, and is now the district town; Tehri was the site of the fort of Tikamgarh, and the town eventually took the name of the fort.
"The fort was built in order to commemorate the visit of Emperor Jehangir to Orchha. It is a tiered palace crowned with elegant chhatris (umbrellas). It's not just their lavish exteriors but one can ponder upon the notable interiors too which represent fine arts of the Bundela School of Painting."
"It is situated to the right of the quadrangle and was built by Madhukar Shah in the 17th century. The astounding interiors re-live a colourful theme on religious occasions."
"Rai Parveen was a poetess and musician, paramour of Raja Indramani. She was sent to Delhi on the orders of the Emperor Akbar, who was captivated by her. However impressed by her true love for Indramani he sent her back to Orchha. The palace built for her has been skilfully carved with a stunning water supply system. It is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens which give it a splash of colour."
"It is built upon a large stone platform and can be reached by a staircase. It was specially constructed to enshrine the image of Rama that remained in the Ram Raja Temple."
"It is considered to be the most important temples of all. This is the only temple in the country where Rama is worshipped as a king that too in a palace."
"There is a path which links this temple with Ram Raja Temple. There are paintings which cover the interiors of this temple. Their excellent preservation has retained the vivid quality of their colours."
"It is a formal garden with a row of fountains at its centre. It was a summer relief spot for the Orchha kings. It has a highly engineered water ventilation which connects the underground palace with Chandan Katora, a bowl-like structure from whose fountains droplets of water filtered through to the roof, simulating rainfall."
"It is a small palace in ruins but is still a pilgrimage spot for Muslims. Dhurjban, son of Jhujhar, embraced Islam when he wed a Muslim girl at Delhi. He spent the latter part of his life in prayer and meditation and came to be revered as a saint."
"This place commemorates the great freedom fighter Chandrashekhar Azad who lived and worked in hiding in Orchha during 1926 and 1927."
