George Castle


The George Castle in Shivpuri is located within the mysterious depths of the forests of the Madhav National Park. The George Castle was built by Jiwaji Rao Scindhia. There is a very amazing story associated with the construction of the George Castle. In the year 1911, King George V came to India from England. On that trip he was supposed to pass through this area. Being interested in Tiger shooting he would halt for a night at this place. Jiwaji Rao ordered the construction of this castle so that he could reside here overnight. Unfortunately, the visitor shot a tiger on the way itself and there was no need for him to reside at this castle which was constructed only to entertain him.
