After being in the family for fourteen generations, Raja Samar Singh and his family now offer 4 rooms in Fort Rampura as a homestay. Atiya is a large room on the fort terrace. Manik Chowk offers a view of the main central courtyard of the fort – a courtyard that houses the family deity. The Daftar was originally used as an office/study but now is a large spacious room, ideal for families and opens out on to a small courtyard used for barbeques and sit-outs. Kamal burj is another room that overlooks the front of the fort.

Suggested Activity #1Folk Music
The rustic folk singers of Bundelkhand are a talented lot. A walk to the villages around the fort to listen to the folk singers, who use traditional percussion instruments like Dholak and Jhika, is quite entertaining.
Suggested Activity #2Bundelkhand Forts
Rampura is surrounded by several forts and palaces of Bundelkhand which are worth visiting to get an idea of the kind of clan warfare prevalent in olden times. Prominent forts recommended are Jagamanpur, Tihar, Gopalpura, Samthar, Sevanda, Ater and Bareh.
Suggested Activity #2Ride on Yamuna
The river Yamuna looks resplendent at Bundelkhand and a boat ride is highly recommended. The sight of fishermen using traditional nets to catch fresh water fishes from the Yamuna is worth photographing.
