The beautifully laid garden in Orchha, the Phool Bagh bears a testimony to the highly polished aesthetic sagacity of the Bundelas, who were the rulers and leaders of this small place in Madhya Pradesh. The Phool Bagh in Orchha served as a summer retreat by the kings of Orchha.

The Phool Bagh were built as a memorial for Dinman Hardaul, the prince of Orchha, who died a martyr, to prove his innocence to his big brother.

There is an resourceful system of water ventilation connecting the underground palace with Chandan Katora. The Chandan Katora is the beautiful fountain. The Phool Bagh in orchha also houses the Badgir Sawan Bhadon Towers. These towers were built with the purpose to provide a cooling effect to the place, by capturing the prevailing wind.
