Jhansi is a renowned city in the southern part of Uttar Pradesh, about 415 KMs from New Delhi. Once an esteemed Maratha capital, it is also referred to as the 'City of Rani Lakshmi Bai' after the Rani of Jhansi. Situated on the confluence of the Betwa and Pahunj rivers, Jhansi was once home to the Chendela kings of Bundelkhand. The name itself means ‘blurred shadow’.

Jhansi gains most of its fame from the famous Queen, Rani Lakshmi Bai, who fought valiantly after the death of her husband and succeeded in repelling the advances of the British army. A vibe of unconcealed defiance against the British rule still lingers in the city. Forever on, the name Jhansi and the Rani Lakshmi Bai have been intertwined.
