Jhansi is a small, quiet city within the state of Uttar Pradesh. Jhansi symbolizes bravery, courage, and self-respect. Jhansi, which is the gateway to Bundelkhand, was a bastion of the Chandela Kings – but lost its significance after the empire eclipsed in the 11th Century.
Jhansi is filled to the brim with history, as well as whispers of legends and stories of courage and success. Jhansi, after all, is the home of the heroine and queen, Rani Lakshmibai or Jhansi ki Rani (Queen of Jhansi).
Jhansi is near the religious site of Orchha, but also holds so much beauty and history of its own. Explore the Jhansi Fort, and visit the Temple of Lord Shiva and the Lord Ganesha shrine that reside there. Stay at Hotel Prakash Regency, and if you’re feeling hungry, seek out the restaurant called Opium, or try the most delicious veg burger you will ever eat at Vandana Sweets.
