These Cenotaphs are nest to the hotel we stayed in so walked round to have a look. Vultures nesting on most of the roof tops.They are situated on the river bank and it is a nice walk to the bridge.

Your fort ticket gets you entrance. A peaceful garden has now been planted around the cenotaphs making it a peaceful place to sit and take in the monuments

If you have travelled all the way to Orchha and you miss the Chhatris...its like going to Agra and missing out on visiting Fatehpur Sikri.

We really enjoed the calm sleepy atmosphere of the areal with cenotaphs. There is garden with sweet smelling flowers. On the top of the cenotaphs lives the endangered vultures whoo looks like live gargoils. you can climb to the firts storey of the most distant cenotaph - there is a nice view of the areal and the river.

Orchha would not be Orchha without these Cenotaphs, therefore a visit to th riverbank as well as the immaculate walled gardens after visiting the fort is so important if you are to understand fully this area. They are amazing, and quite well preserved. Great place to get away from the busy market area.

Same ticket as the Fort one, does help. But after seeing the fort and the jahangir mahal, these cenotaphs aren't much

Fellow travellers make sure to buy ticket from jahangir mahal. Same ticket is applicable to visit all the tourist attractions in Orchha. I went to Chatris and came back again to buy ticket. All these are built beside betwa river. Best time to visit is in the morning or early evening hours. Calm and peaceful . Pleasant air. Can hear... More

Can't say much about this place as I visited place in evening and I couldn't find anyone around to show or what the place signify. It is a great place to view I can say if someone goes in the light. I saw the place in evening and could feel I missed the opportunity to visit the place which is... More

In a well tended garden and at the end of the town overlooking the Betwa River stands this monumental group of Cenotaphs ... they are absolutely amust if you go to Orchha and the best time to see them in early morning. Be aware you need to get the tickets for visiting all monuments at the Fort complex first.
