Betwa River Orchha

The historical little town of Orchha is famous for its architectural glory and graceful Betwa River. The town is landlocked and primarily fed by the Betwa River. The graceful river is also known by the name of Vetravati. It originates from the mountains of North India and gushes through the plains to enter Madhya Pradesh.

River Betwa is an integral part of the medieval city of Orchha. In the epic Mahabharata, the river has found ample mention. This river carries a lot of emotions and sentiments of the dwellers of the place. What Brahmaputra River is to Assam, River Betwa is just the same for the people of Orchha. In the mythological texts, this river finds mention as the Shuktimati River on whose banks the capital of the Chedi kingdom rested.

In the recent times, Betwa Riverís fame has increased after the construction of Matatila Dam, an undertaking between the states of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.
