    Morning after breakfast drive to Orchha, on the way visit Datia and Jhansi.

    Peetambra-Peeth is a complex of Hindu temples located in the city of Datia, in the Madhya Pradesh state of the central India. It was, according to many legends 'Tapasthali' of many mythological as well as real life people. The shivlingam of shree Vankhandeswar Shiva is tested and approved by the Archaeological Survey of India to be of the same age as that of the Mahabharata. It is primarily a Shakti place of worship. Shri Peetambara Peetha is one of the most famous temples of Baglamukhi which was established by Shree Swami Ji in 1920s. He also established the temple of goddess Dhumavati within the ashram. Dhumavati and Bagalamukhi are the two of the ten Mahavidyas.

    India was attacked by China on October 20, 1962 in what famously came to be known as Sino-India war of 1962.  when India and China were at war, the lord of Pitambara, the Mother, had given 51 Kundal Mahayagya  of Mother Bagalamukhi to protect the country at the request of Military Officials and the then Prime Minister Nehru, It is said that China withdrew its forces with the final sacrifice on the 11th day. At that time Yajna spot built for the Yajna remains in Datia even today.

     

    Visit Bir Singh Palace (Vir Singh Deo’s Palace) : “Built on top of a granite ridge, the 17th century Vir Singh Deo's palace at Datia consists of a three layered space, 80 meters square and approximately 40m high, with a 'palace-tower'— capped by a mandap — at centre, middle ring of halls and fortified outer layer. The specialty of this palace is that it is of 7 floors.

    Jhansi is considered to be the gateway of the Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh. It rose to glory during the rule of Chandelas but lost some of its sheen after the decline of their empire somewhere in the 11th century. Jhansi’s main claim to fame is its fiery queen Rani Laxmibai, who led the forces against the British in the first battle for independence in 1857. She was married to Raja Gangadhar of Jhansi but never bore him any children, a fact that was exploited by the British who wanted to force her into retirement but she retaliated in 1857 by trying to seize the Jhansi Fort.

    Jhansi Fort: The fort of Maharani Jhansi has strategic importance since the earliest of times. It was built by Raja Bir Singh Ju Deo (1606-27) of Orchha on a rocky hill called Bangra in the town of Balwantnagar (presently known as Jhansi).

    The fort has ten gates ( Darwaza). Some of these are Khandero Gate, Datia Darwaza, Unnao gate, Jharna Gate, Laxmi Gate, Sagar Gate, Orcha Gate, Sainyar Gate, Chand Gate.

    Among places of interest within the main fort area are the Karak Bijli Toup (Tank), Rani Jhansi Garden, Shiv temple and a “Mazar” of Ghulam Gaus Khan, Moti Bai and Khuda Baksh.

    The Jhansi fort, a living testimony of ancient glamour, also has a fine collection of sculptures which provide an excellent inside into the eventful history of Bundelkhand.

A pre-historic site, its giant rock formation must have provided ample shelter to the ancient tribes that dwelt here. Recently, about 760 rock shelters of the Neolithic age (circa 8,000 b.c.) were discovered here. These shelters are decorated with picture writings, depicting the life and times of pre-historic cave dwellers.

The temple is a simple square with outside portion of 66 feet, there are no re-entrant angles usual domes, though it is incomplete but has a magnificent soaring strength of line and is supported by four pillars. Like dome the pillars are also massive but they retain a remarkable elegance due to their tapering form. Divided into three sections the lowest is an octagon with facets of 2.12 feet, from which springs a 24-faced section. The doorway is richly carved from above and from below it is plain throwing sharp relief against the two exquisitely sculpted figures that stand on the either side. The other three sides are balconies each supported by massive brackets and four intricately carved pillars. The lingam in the sanctum rises to an awe inspiring height of 7.5 feet with a circumference of 17.8 feet. Set upon a massive platform 21.5 feet square and made of three superimposed limestone blocks, the architectural harmony of lingam and platform creates a superb synthesis of solidity and lightness. Due to reason unknown the temple was not completed and the earthen ramp used to raise it to dome level still stands. The temple is one of the finest examples of temple architecture of the12th and 13th centuries.
