Author(s): Dr. Pradeep Kumar Sharma and Dr. Sanjeev Kumar

Abstract: This research-based article talks about the customary practices of Orchha Kingdom which were recognized by the Union of India at the time of accession of this kingdom. Orchha is a historically famous place of Bundelkhand region in Niwari district of Madhya Pradesh. It has the wide collection of historical, natural and living heritage. The territory was founded by Rudra Pratap Singh, the Bundela chief in the year 1501 AD. During the rule of the British Empire in India, Orchha was appointed as one of the princely states of India. After the country gained independence from the British administration in the year 1947, the princely state was acceded to the newly formed Union of India, also called the Dominion of India, in the year 1950. The most important architectural site of this kingdom is The Ram Raja Temple under which lies the popular custom of worshipping Lord Rama both as a God and as a King, inside a palace. This temple was built only for Lord Rama to be worshipped with all the royal furnishings. Even today, a Guard of Honour is held every day, police personnel have been designated as Guards at the temple, much in the manner of a king. The royal feast is also provided to the deity at the temple as a royal repast. This temple has a huge grandeur attached to it.
