History

Tori Fatehpur is situated on a hillock in Jhansi District (Bundelkhand Region) of Uttar Pradesh on the Jhansi - Khajuraho Road , 30 kms East of Mauranipur and 100 kms from Jhansi.This fort is more than 300 years old and was built before the coming of the Mughals in India, its structure is made in three parts – one part of the fort has Rajasthani art and the other two parts are from Mughal and British period.

The history goes that it was under the sovereignty of Gusain Sun Jogra. In 1731 the Bundela invasion took place under a powerful ruler Diwan Hindupath Singh Ju Deo who was great, great grandson of HH Maharaja Bir Singh Ju Deo of Orchha. After winning the battle against Gusain Sun Jogra, Kuwar Hindupath was proclaimed the Diwan of Tori by his father Diwan Rai Singh as he was the eldest son, and as the fort was built on a hillock (toriya) and named it Tori and he captured Fatehpur village and got victory (fateh) thus its name became " Tori Fatehpur."
