Ram Raja Temple
Ram Raja Temple has historical tales associated with it. It is believed that the idols installed here were meant to be installed in the Chaturbhuj Temple. But as the idols were placed on the grounds of Ram Raja Temple, they could not be budged. Thus, devotees raised a temple at this place. The temple features a serene aura with beautiful architecture.

Phool Bagh
This is a huge garden complex showcasing the artistic qualities of the Bundelas. Here you will find numerous fountains in an 8-pillared palace pavilion. These fountains work in a beautiful manner which is a worth exploring site. In the past, the garden was a summer retreat for the kings of Orchha.
