- Encounters with locals
Jhansi is a huge road and railway junction in the Ganges Valley. It's an absolutely unavoidable crossing during a trip in India. In fact, Jhansi is located at the heart of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Whether going to Delhi, Bharatpur, Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, Khajuraho, Sanchi, or Varanasi, you have to go through Jhansi at one time or another. But besides passing through, there is absolutely nothing to do here. In case you arrive late, you can still sleep in Jhansi. There's a wide selection of inexpensive guesthouses and hotels, and the ideal is to stay right at the train station. Prices are very appealing here and the location is really perfect to catch the next train. The general philosophy in Jhansi could be "Keep moving, there's nothing to see here."
