Mahoba

Mahoba is said to be derived from a great sacrifice, performed by its reputed founder the Chandela Raja Chandra Varma in 800 AD. Architectural antiquities of the Chandela period abound throughout the neighbourhood. Mahoba was also a prominent cultural centre. The Chandela kings, apparently, desired two earthly things after the safe possession of Bundelkhand: to built temples for their gods and to bring water to the land. These lakes are Madan Sagar, Vijay Sagar, Kalyan Sagar and Kirat Sagar. Madan Sagar, 5 km in circumference, was made in the 12th century, Vijay Sagar in 11th century. The other two are Kalyan Sagar and Kirat Sagar.

Charkhari
The hill fort at Charkhari is surrounded on three sides by water. The landward approach to the fort is made though an imposing gate, its door studded with spikes to deter elephants from knocing it down. It leads to a courtyard and durbar hall decorated with portraits of the Charkhari Rajas. From there the ascent is long and gradual and this enabled elephants and heavy guns to be taken higher. There are canons abandoned in nearly every bastion. Also within these walls are the temple gardens and well. Parmadidev, the last Chandela king, was defeated by the Chauhan emperor Prithiraj in 1182, the latter making Delhi his strategic base. Qutb-ud-Din (See page 165) took the town in 1195. A number of Muslim remains survive. The tomb of Jalhan Khan is constructed from the remains of a Saivite temple, and a mosque whose Persian inscription indicates it was founded in 1322 during the reign of Ghiyas-ud-din-Tughlug. The fort fell into the hands of Tantia Topi during the Mutiny but the local Raja Ratan Singh remained loyal to the British and afterwards was awarded a hereditary 11 gun salute.
