The Jhansi Fort is located at the top of Bagira, a hill situated in Uttar Pradesh in the northern part of India. It is a 17th-century architectural monument that has undergone royal construction followed by massive destruction in the first War of Independence against the British East India Company. Within the four-walls lay monuments like Baradari with astute and creative architecture, Kal Kothari or a dungeon for prisoners, Ganesha and Shiva temples and a museum that harbours remnants of the Chandela dynasty – weaponry, clothes and paintings. The streets are filled with bazaars and temples. There is also a war memorial paying tribute to martyrs, and the Rani Lakshmibai Park built in the memory of her poignant role in the freedom struggle.
