AN ANCIENT TOWN, DATIA FINDS ITS MENTION IN THE MAHABHARATA BY THE NAME OF ‘DAITYAVAKRA’
An astonishing confluence of Mughal and Rajput architecture, the 7 storeyed Datia Palace stands tall in the historic city of Datia. While its exterior is adorned with arches, chhatris and oriel windows, the Bundela paintings beautify the interior.
Mentioned as Daityavakra in Mahabharata, the city of Datia is blessed with history as well as divinity. Numerous temples, some even dating back to pre-historic times, give this city its second name - ‘Laghu Vrindavan’ or ‘Small Vrindavan’.
The city of Datia might be nicknamed ‘Small Vrindavan’ but it holds stories, countless and ancient, that very few libraries can. Stories that take you back in time, and to the childhood moments of wonder.
