Rani Jhansi Fort

Built on top of the Bangira Hill, the Rani Jhansi fort was constructed on orders from the Bundela Rajput chief - Vir Sing Deo. The fort was later given as a part of a gift to Peshwa Bajirao & was handed down until Rani Lakshmibai's husband ruled it. Along with a mammoth strengthening wall surrounded by a moat on both sides, the fort was impregnable. Enjoy the classic North Indian style of fort construction as you explore this architectural marvel.
