Orcha - Ramraja Mandir 

Madhya Pradesh, nick named as India's 'middle land' has scores of monuments displaying a distinct characteristic culture- combination of Hindu-Islam styles of architecture. Some of the Hindu relics bear fantastic Muslim names. The rulers that followed retained Indo-arsenic flavor, although they gave face lift to the ancient ones. Mansions in good condition and places of worship still carrying on traditional prayer services exhibit certain exotic features. Among such temples, Ram Raja temple now found in the centre of Orcha village can be singled out for illustration. The murals of this temple and the other in the same place called lakshmi Narayana temple are unlike Hindu temples. Even the towers share exotic styles. The dome shaped tower mirrors un-Indianess, but the prayer services remain untouched. Here in this Ram Raja temple, the icon of Rama is worshipped and it is deemed the only temple where Rama is adored zealously in these parts.

Regular worship and annual festivals are carried on with great devotional fervor. The architecture going by the name of Bundeli style is extremely bewitching and detains the visitors for hours.

It lies 120 km off Gwalior of Madhya Pradesh, accessible by train and bus.
