Lalitpur





India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
 
Lalitpur District is one of the districts of Uttar Pradesh state of India. Lalitpur District is a part of Jhansi Division. Lalitpur is the main town and administrative headquarters. The district has a population of population 977,447 in 2001 census. It is joined to Jhansi District of Uttar Pradesh by a narrow corridor to the northeast, but is otherwise almost completely surrounded by Madhya Pradesh state, to the east lies Tikamgarh District, to the south Sagar District, and to the west Ashoknagar and Shivpuri districts. Lalitpur, Jalaun, and Jhansi districts form Jhansi Division.
 
Lalitpur District was formerly part of the state of Chanderi, founded in the 17th century by a Bundela Rajput who was descended from Rudra Pratap of Orchha. Chanderi, along with most of Bundelkhand, came under Maratha hegemony in the 18th century. Daulat Rao Sindhia of neighboring Gwalior annexed Chanderi state in 1811. In 1844, the former state of Chanderi was ceded to the British, and became the Chanderi District of British India, with Lalitpur town as the district headquarters. The British lost the district in the Indian Rebellion of 1857, and it was not reconquered until late 1858. In 1861, the portion of the district west of the Betwa, including Chanderi, was returned to Gwalior, and the remainder was renamed Lalitpur District. Lalitpur District was made part of Jhansi District from 1891 to 1974.

Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Lalitpur enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
