The name Parichha refers to two important landmarks in Jhansi. One is the name of a dam located on Betwa River approximately 25 kilometers from the city. It has a reservoir whose placid waters reach up to Notghat Bridge located 34 kilometers from Jhansi. The dam is a major destination for water sports especially for those who love boating.
Parichha is also the name of a colony in Jhansi District and is situated on the Kanpur-Jhansi highway. It remains under the protective cover of the Central Industrial Security Force (C.I.S.F.) because of its proximity to Parichha Thermal Power Station, a big coal based power plant which produces 1140 Mega Watt of electricity.
Parichha is home to a temple, mosque, church and a Buddha monastery. It also has the usual public facilities like banks, parks, four different clubs, guest house, a hospital, college and schools notably Maharani Laxmibai Saraswati Shishu Mandir and Sacred Heart Convent School.
