Jhansi Fort, Jhansi
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.
