Murals of Raj Mahal, Orchha - 1

Orchha (State: Madhya Pradesh) has an imposing fort, dating back to the 16th century. The Fort Complex contains magnificent palaces of the Bundela kings presenting a matchless spectacle of those times. (Click on the images for bigger picture)

One of such palace is 17th century palace, the Raj Mahal. When compared to plain exterior of the Raj Mahal, the paintings on the interiors are extraordinary.

These are the paintings in the Queen's room. The ceilings and walls are painted beautifully.

These paintings depict scenes from various Indian epics.
