Located at a distance of 133 KM from Jhansi, Deogarh lies in Lalitpur district of with Uttar Pradesh. The name is derived from the Sanskrit term “Dev” meaning God and “Garh” meaning Fort compounded to mean “Fort of the gods”. This town is of great epigraphical and archaeological importance and has figured in the history of Guptas, the Gurjara – Pratiharas, the Gondas, the Marathas and the British. It is situated on the right bank of the River Betwa, at the western end of Lalitpur range. The cliffs overhanging the bank rise to a height of 300 feet and form a long steep ridge of red sandstone. The river takes a deep curve to the west at this juncture and passes through an extremely picturesque side. This town is well dotted with temples and the architecture& built of these temples display a high level of craftsmanship. On this land, there are more than 2000 temples which are probably nowhere in the world.Deogarh is a perfect destination for those who love to explore the ancient forts & temples.

Quite impressed by Lucknow as a city - great roads, a charming historical feel, some green pockets. Tempted to travel around UP!
I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this. It is even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build and what love can motivate us to build.
The power of the Kashi Vishwanath temple hit us! Incredibly powerful. So greatful to the divine universal spirit of all.
