Amar Mahal is built on Acres of mounted land overlooking the magnanimous cenotaphs and the River Betwa in Orchha (Madhya Pradesh). The Old palace, which still stands high depicting the tales of bygone era, was once witness to the grand royal stories. The present retreat is an addition to the old world charm that dates back to 1895. The architecture of Amar Mahal is built like the Rajput house of Bundelkhand. It is a perfect gateway to experience the historical and natural splendour of Orchha which are less than a kilometer away from the hotel. We personally supervise the preparation for our extensive Menu, offering the true flavours of the continental and local Bundelkhandi dishes prepared from the fresh plucks of our own organic garden. Dining at Amar Mahal is a unique experience that not just brings back to life the grandeur and memorable flavours of the royal era but also serves health in the platter.Nevertheless, Amar Mahal in all senses is the perfect base to enjoy the heritage of Orchha from the lap of luxury filled nature and culture.
A visit to Amar Mahal is like a tryst with history. Admire the majestic Bundela paintings in the Mahal, collect some exquisite pieces of art by skilled craftsmen and spend on metal artifacts like renowned Dokra metal art of Orchha.
Orchha, literally meaning `Hidden` is an ancient medieval town which was founded in 16th century by the Bundela Rajput chieftain, Rudra Pratap. This stretch of land along the River Betwa in Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh India was an ideal site for the king’s capital. Marked by the unexampled temples, huge cenotaphs (chhatri), and striking forts, the capital of Bundela Kingdom has beautifully preserved the spirit of its illustrious past and breathes history in every detail. Those who are not fascinated by history, the medieval city do not disappoint them either. Encompassed by thick Dhak forest where every dawn is embraced by chirping of birds, where the shimmering holy river and the sighting of rare Indian Vultures atop the rooftops of magnanimous palaces and cenotaphs of Orchha add to the picturesque ambience, the destination appears like a sweet reverie.
