History

The gateway to Bundelkhand, Jhansi is a city that is linked still with the legend of its fiery queen. Rani Laxmibai. In the 1857 war against the British, she led her troops into battle, striking a blow for Indian independence and laying her life down for her cause. Jhansi is ideally located for various rewarding excursions in the area. Jhansi was a stronghold of the Chandela kings. Balwant Nagar was the name of this place. But in 11th century Jhansi lost its importance. In 17th century under Raja Bir Singh Deo of Orchha Jhansi again rose to prominence. Raja Bir Singh Deo had good relations with the Mughal emperor Jehangir. In 1613 Raja Bir Singh Deo constructed the Jhansi fort. He died in 1627. After his death his son Juhar Singh succeeded him.
