The Phool Bagh of Orchha in Madhya Pradesh is a beautiful garden of the royal rulers of the Bundelkhand dynasty that reflects their rich aesthetic sense and natural splendor of the place during the ancient times. Surrounded by colorful and attractive flower beds, Phool Bagh was the summer palace of the imperial rulers of Orchha during the traditional times.
The Phool Bagh represents the rich architectural legacy and artistic sense of the rulers of Orchha. The beautiful edifice was constructed as a mark of respect to the great religious soul of Dinman Hardaul who sacrificed his life for his elder brother Jhujhar. Jhujhar had suspected Dinman Hardaul’s alleged relation with his friend and companion. To show his deep love and respect for his elder brother, Dinman happily laid down his life.
One of the prominent travel attractions in Orchha, Phool Bagh supports a beautiful fountain which is commonly referred to as the Chandan Katora. Chandan Katora adds to the beauty of the place that supplies water to the palatial residence of the royal rulers of Orchha. The Badgir Sawan Bhadon Towers are other attractions of Phool Bagh.
The huge towers were constructed with the aim of keeping the interior of the sprawling palace cool and pleasant. The huge towers of Badgir Sawan would capture the hot winds and produce a cooling effect over the entire area. The architecturally well designed and well maintained Phool Bagh draws several tourists from far and wide who are absolutely thrilled with the artistic caliber and creative imagination of the local artisans of the ancient times.
