    Dead slow internet

    by Willettsworld Updated Jun 14, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As Orchha is a small village in the middle of nowhere, the modern broadband internet connections haven't arrived yet. What you'll find are plenty of places but the connection speed is dead slow at just 33.6kbps so you'll be wasting your time and your money. It's a much better option to use the internet in Khajuraho.

    Map on temple wall

    by Willettsworld Written Jun 13, 2007

    Favorite thing: This rather faded map is on the front wall of the Ram Raja Temple. It shows a map of the villages attractions but it was a bit difficult to navigate on the map as north was pointed towards the east so I had to tilt my head to get my bearings based on my small map in Lonely Planet.

    Main Street

    Favorite thing: The small main street of Orchha is lined with tiny shops ranging anything from barbers to gift stores to travel companies. There are also numerous small guesthouses. Really you can cover the whole little village in not much more than half an hour.

    Free to Roam

    by keeweechic Written Nov 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Remarkably in Orchha you are allowed to roam freely around the palaces and ruins in the town. No one bothers you or is directing you which is very pleasant. A few children play inside the buildings and courtyards presumably while their parents work on the repairs.

    Equality

    Favorite thing: One thing you see a lot of around the countryside and small towns of India is the women working as hard as the men. You will see them with baskets of building debris or soil balanced on their heads from construction or repair sites.

    No Hassling

    Favorite thing: Amazingly, after all the towns and cities I traveled through with all the hassling of locals to buy things, this wonderful little place just went about its business and left us alone. It was a welcomed change.

    Pretty Laid Back...

    by kenmerk Written Dec 31, 2004
    Couple local kids in Orchha...

    Favorite thing: While there are locals milling around trying to sell some stuff in Orchha, its not that in your face rabid kinda hawking that you see at most of the tourist stops in India....

    Its actually quite refreshing after the mayhem in Agra...

    A place to relax...

    by Peter_P Updated Jan 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: After Delhi, Jaipur and Agra it is heaven on Earth !! No beggars, no intrusive vendors, a quiet market-place,... Nice people, children playing with eachother. Here the tourists are the attraction...
    Two days to relax was good for me. Acquiring some energy for the next trip to Khajurago and Varanasi.

    Just A Little Town

    Favorite thing: Orchha appears from the middle of nowhere and apart from the fort palaces and chhatris and ruins scattered around the landscape, this really small town is just made up of a few quiet streets.
