The Phool Bagh of Orchha is a beautiful garden of the royal rulers of the Bundelkhand dynasty that reflects their rich aesthetic sense and natural splendor of the place during the ancient times. Surrounded by colorful and attractive flower beds, Phool Bagh was the summer palace of the imperial rulers of Orchha during the traditional times. The beautiful place was constructed as a mark of respect to the great religious soul of Dinman Hardaul who sacrificed his life for his elder brother Jhujhar. Jhujhar had suspected Dinman Hardaul's alleged relation with his friend and companion. To show his deep love and respect for his elder brother, Dinman happily laid down his life. One of the prominent travel attractions in Orchha, Phool Bagh supports a beautiful fountain which is commonly referred to as the Chandan Katora.An ingenious system of water ventilation connects the underground palace with Chandan Katora, a bowl-like structure from whose fountains droplets of water filtered through to the roof, simulating rainfall. The Phool Bagh in orchha also houses the Badgir Sawan Bhadon Towers. These towers were built with the purpose to provide a cooling effect to the place, by capturing the prevailing wind.
