We went to Datia from Gwalior after a tiring bus journey and visited the 17th-century palace of Vir Singh Deo at Datia. A very fine example of Hindu architecture, apart from temples
This palace was deserted when we were there, as it is not in any major tourist circuit, it was relatively free. I really loved the orthogonal spatial and planar organisation of the palace, a strikingly Hindu feature, from the Vasthu Purusha Mandala.
