What to do | Local attractions

Arya Hammeer Garhi is a village Resort.

Built right within a culturally vibrant village representing the true ethnic colours of the region called Bundelkhand, it invariably and unmistakably introduces its guests to “real India” – agrarian, developing, concentrated in villages and bound in its customs, traditions and beliefs

While you are at Arya Hameer Garhi, there are lots of things you could do locally. Some of them are suggested as under :.

  • Boating
  • Arya Hammeer Garhi has two interconnected lakes – the Raj Talaiya (King’s Lake) and Imaliya Taal. You can take comfortable 4seater pedal boats and explore the village, agricultural farms and local landscaping around these water bodies on your own.


  • Angling
  • What’s better than to fit into your tropical clothes, adorn a hat, get some delicacies packed and set out to spend time along one of the three lakes catching fishes! The local species like Rohu, Katla and Saunr are sure to delight you.


  • The Cenotaphs (Chhatris)
  • Arya Hammeer Garhi is about 350 years old. Many of its ex-residents – the descendants of King Hammeer dev – rests in peace in the numerous cenotaphs built right outside the village. A must see..


  • Village walk
  • Want to experience real India first-hand? India resides in its 7.5 million villages. While here, you can explore one on your own. Set out on an individual or guided tour of the village. Walk through its streets, see the local lifestyle, mud thatched houses with terracotta roofs and earthen walls & floors, co-existence with cattle, use of cow-dung as fuel, local age-old agrarian practises………this is a journey to a different world all-together


  • Cycle Treks
  • Explore the village, its surroundings, the three lakes, rugged hills, nearby villages, agricultural fields, local temples, and lots of other interesting places around on bicycle.


  • Horse riding
  • And for those who have a hang-over of the times gone by, here is your royal way to roam about and cover distances in style.

Start of industrial revolution in Europe about two centuries back dethroned Indian artisans from the world market and largely resulted them to perish.
