HomeThings to do in Madhya Pradesh

Located in Central India's Bundelkhand region, the village guest house is about 3 km from Chanderi, famous for its silks. Visit the village and let the rhythm of the looms create magic for your eyes and ears while you interact with weavers and design your own drape. The more adventurous could try their hand at weaving. Watch village life or visit the historic city of Chanderi while its past is unravelled brick by brick. Enjoy the folk tales hidden in the heart of Bundelkhand and surrender to folk music and lively dances of another India! Amraee will rejuvenate you with its earthiness and historic charm. The Amraee Guest House was set up as part of a UNDP and Government of India project to promote rural tourism. It was formally inaugurated in 2008 and open to guests since September 2011. The Pranpur Village Tourism Development Committee maintains and runs the guest house. Its main aim is to promote the weavers, potters and metal workers while developing the village as a tourist site. You can directly interact with the local craftspeople and buy products from them, ensuring maximum revenue to them and recognition of their skills. The guesthouse itself is set in a 5-acre mango orchard. Amraee derives its name from Aam (mangoes) and Raee (a Bundelkhandi folk dance). The house is built in traditional Bundelkhandi style architecture - all the four rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with western style bathrooms attached.
