Tourist guide to Bundelkhand
Bundelkhand offers a range of attractions for tourists.
Apart from well-known places like Khajurao, Orchha, the Panna
tiger sanctuary and Chitrakoot, there are scenes of spectacular beauty in
Bundelkhand Upland sub-region - deep gorges and thundering waterfalls amidst
Each district of the region has numerous, little-visited
ruins of ancient and medieval temples.
There are also places of major historical importance like the
star-fort in Jhansi and the fort of Kalinjar in Banda district.
Despite all these selling points, Bundelkhand attracts few
tourists from outside the region. Only Khajurao in Chhatarpur district and
Orchha in Tikamgarh district have been 'sold’ effectively.
A major deterrent for tourists is the state of allied
infrastructure. Except in Orchha and Khajurao, there are no Grade-A hotels in
the region. Many district headquarters do not have rail connections. Fear of
dacoity deters movement of road traffic after sunset.
Links in the right column provide brief information and some
notable facts about each district for interested visitors. More information
about particular places (like Khajurao) can be got from other websites, or the
UP and MP tourism development corporations.
