Mahoba - the city of great festivals


 
Travel & Tourism
Mahoba is located in the Bundelkhand region and is a small city of the state of Uttar Pradesh. The place is highlighted for its historical value. It is almost encircled by Khajuraho, Laundi and other important places like Kulpahar, Charkhari, Kalinjar, Orchha, and Jhansi. The name Mahoba is originated from “Mahotsav Nagar”, the city of great festivals. The city was ornamented with three other names like Kekaipur, Patanpur and Ratanpur. It is 140km far from Jhansi, another highlighted historic place of Uttar Pradesh. Once Mahoba was the capital of the Chandel Rajputs from 10th-16th centuries. Several artificial lakes in Mahoba created by the Chandel rulers. In 1203 this place was captured by the Muslim general Qutb-ud-din Aybak. The place experienced many dynasties like Mughals, Marathas and finally British Raj. The place is known for its bravery. The stories of Veer ALHA and UDAL are associated with this place and make it prominent in the Indian history. Mahoba consists of some place to visit. Among them Kakramath Temple, Vijay Sagar Pakshi Vihar, Sun Temple at Rahila Sagar, Manaiya Devi Temple, Gokhar Hill are quite well noticeable. Kakramath Temple is an ancient granite temple and dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is well visited as the basic structure is quite resembles to temples of Khajuraho. Sun Temple at Rahila Sagar another old temple made of granite and still stands as a specimen of old Pratihara architecture. The place is landscaped with some lakes mostly made by the past rulers. Kirat Sagar was built by Kirtivarman where as Madan Sagar was constructed and named after Madan Verma who ruled the place between 1128 AD and 1165 AD. Other beautiful lakes are Kalyan Sagar, Vijay Sagar and Rahila Sagar. The main language of this place is Hindi along with Bundeli. Sawan Kajali Mela is the important festival of this place. Now the place is known for fine betel leaf cultivation and granite rocks. Its later history is un-eventful except for the local revolt in the first freedom struggle of 1857 AD when the British Sub-divisional Magistrate, Mr Carne, had to flee and seek refuge in the nearby Charkhari estate which was being ruled by Raja Ratan Singh. The Rani of Jhansi, got annoyed over this betrayal of Raja and deputed her general Tantia Tope to attack Charkhari and capture Mr. Carne.Raja Ratan Singh surrendered and entered into a treaty with Tantya Tope. Mahoba was then under the rule of rebels whom the British General Whitloack defeated and restored British rule. He arrested a large number of local rebels and hanged some of the prominent men on the trees in the vicinity called Haveli Darwaza. A "Shaheed Mela" is now annually held there to commemorate the memory of those rebels. The district sited at the foot of the Gorakh-giri or 'Gokhar' hills is conveniently placed nearly 55 km north of the temple city of Khajuraho, and 109 Km distance to the north east of the illustrious fort at Kalinjar.
