A fusion of inimitable architecture, stories of dynastic struggles and roaming the stark arid topography, which has witnessed the valour of some of the most eminent freedom fighters of India, will leave you in thrall at Bundelkhand.

Bundelkhand lies wedged between the Indo-Gangetic Plain to the north and the low Vindhya Mountain range to the south. The topography looks bleak with vast tracts of pale rocky land clinging to either side of the roads – a dull brown scape broken by the green of the shrubby dhak copses. Sparse vegetation, barren hills and the criss-crossing rivers in the plains offer a typical perspective of the Central India topography. Large shimmering rivers Sindh, Betwa, Shahzad River, Ken, Bagahin, Tons, Pahuj, Dhasan and Chambal meander through the entire region, lending themselves to the construction of many small and big dams across them. Three low mountain ranges dissect the region, their steep slopes and insurmountable scarps having made eligible sites for forts and palaces for the erstwhile rulers.
