I found the Qila to be in fairly good condition. The road leading to the Qila is narrow and through market place . It charges Rs. 25/- as entry fee .It is right on the banks of the river Tapti. It is fairly large , though a part can not be visited due to dilapidated. conditions. Yet again there was no board to guide one to the buildings. It is left to one's imagination. Like the Jenana Hammam could be guessed by the water channels in the room .There are two small rooms depicting the history of Burhanpur inside the Qila .

Nice place to spend the evening. There is a entry fee of Rs.25. The place is well maintained. Day time might be too sunny. Evening is the best time to visit. Fort is mostly in ruins but view of the river is quite relaxing.

If you are in Burhanpur, then you must visit this place. It is a land fort, no trekking required, accessible by vehicles. But, what we preferred is to hire local auto to roam around and visit various other monuments, just to come here in the evening. Because in a broad daylight it will be difficult to roam freely due to sun hitting on the head. It has many sections, the royal bath, the foutains, the large platforms, the huge rooms, the bastions and what not, it is considerably huge and you can spend an hour easily if photographing along the way, the view of Tapi river is amazing, the ghat is beside the fort so that can be seen as well. In total, it is very good visit.

Located on the east of Tapti River in Burhanpur, this qila is a majestic place to explore. It was originally built by the Farooqui rulers of Khandesh but later Mughal Empire Akbar acquired it. Shah Jahan, as the governor of Burhanpur resided here. Although the Qila is mostly in ruins now but the structures stand still display marvelous sculpture and exquisite carvings. It is now under the custody of ASI. It remains open for visitors from 6 am to 6 pm every day.

The main attraction of this qila or fort is the shahi hamam or the royal bath that was used by Begum Mumtaz Mahal, Shah Jahan's wife. The Hammam is a domed structure decorated beautifully with multi coloured paintings on honey comb work. One of these paintings depicts a monument which is said to be the inspiration for the Taj Mahal in Agra.

Mumtaz died in this fort while giving birth to her fourteenth child and Taj Mahal was supposed to be built here initially. The view of Tapti River from the terrace of this fort is beautiful.
