We joined a hindu ceremony with our guide and witnessed the celebrations of the devotees. It was very ornate yet welcoming for non-hindu visitors and worth a stop to get a feel for local practices.

This is the only temple in India where Lord Ram is worshiped as a King and not as a God. The temple is built like a Palace complete with sentries at the entrance also. Its the most crowded place on Orchha.
