“Reminds of an old era”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Me and my friend visited this fort last year. Spectacular views from above the fort. Its vast spread in 15 acres of land, well maintained premises and reminds me of those days. Lots of passages and sacred places too.

“Tour the fort and Rani Laxmi Bai's stories of Bravery will set yr adrenal racing!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

"Bundeley Harbolon key munh hamney suni kahani thi... Khoob ladi mardani woh to Jhansi wali Rani thi..."

These seemed just a verse we were made to recite in school until I visited the Jhansi Fort...

Getting to know the tales of bravery of the great Queen changed my whole mind set... Hats off Ma'am! *bows*

This place is full of stories of bravery... and even the guides feel the pride as they narrate the stories!

Pretty decently maintained... may be as this place is also the broadcast centre for Doordarshan,,,

The entry fee for indian nationals is mere Rs.5 and that for foreign nationals is Rs.100, I believe fee for indian nationals should be made at par with that of foreigners, this'll do 2 goods, 1: more funds for upkeep of the place, 2: keep away people (read: couples) looking to share a few private moments!

The original fort's been destroyed/modified by the british post invasion, which actually hurts when u come to know of it! for example, they converted the deewan-e-khas & deewan-e-aam to WATER TANKS!

Its a huge property, 15 acres to be precise... but each nook and corner has to story to tell.

Do hire a local guide, its worth it if u really interested history...

“A trip in the history of Indias first war of independence”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

The fort is truly majestic on top of a hillock towering over the surrounding plains.It houses the original three storied structure where Rani Laxmi Bai lived along with an adjacent hall where her husband Gangadhar Rao held court.Two massive cannons one Karakbigli and another Bwanishankar reminds us of the war which raged around the fort when the English attacked the Rani.The guide also showed the point from where Rani made her escape by jumping down on a horse back.Rani palace can be seen at a distance with remants of the original gate.A truly majestic site.

“a magnificient reminder of the valour of Rani Laxmibai”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

The Jhansi fort is built over 15 acres of land and has stood testimony of times with the magnificient tale of courage of its queen Rani Laxmibai, possibly the first woman to have led an army on horseback and fought valiantly with her son tied to her back. Each stone of the fort is deeply rooted in partiotism. The Shiva temple and Ganesh temple in the fort premises deserve special mention.
