The Badal Mahal Gate is a different site altogether with no Mahal or palace connected to it. This gate served the purpose of welcoming and grandly honouring the state guests.
In this structre we seenThe ornaments carving onminiature arched facades v geometric motifs. Also The jaalis of four separate patterns & The two floral roundels on the gate.

In this historic area only boundary wall, Gate & garden area to see only. Within 15-20 minutes take time to see these things.

Ticket- Ticket applicable
Parking - Free for all, proper parking space on roadside
Camera - Ticket applicable

Must Know - near by area shops , you can easily purchase fast food, water bottle etc.

Situated near the Jama Masjid, Badal Mahal Darwaza or Badal Mahal Gate was constructed by Sultan Mehmood Shah Khilji, the King of Malwa, in the 15th century to commemorate his victory in one of his many military campaigns.

The Badal Mahal complex is enclosed by an old fort-like structure towards the front and sides.
A straight paved path flanked by beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns from the entrance lead to the tall and imposing Badal Mahal. They remind you of the Mughal gardens that one sees at the Taj Mahal and other Mughal monuments including the likes of Qutub Minar .

There is nothing much to see. It's just a door and a small garden.
Grass is maintained and I guess the ticket is just for walking on the grass.

Whenever we talk about Chanderi, we will find first picture as Badal Mahal. Actually it is not a palace, as per its name but its status is very high, It is mainly a beautifully carved & designed gateway inside a complex. From outside, it looks as if we are entering into a palace building but from inside, we will find a large garden area with lush green grass and Badal Mahal gate as the main attraction of the complex. In past, when VIP guests visits Chanderi, they were formally welcomed here thus its importance is very high. During Chanderi sightseeing, tourists should must visit this place and take photographs. We can visit this place in daytime and it is just close to Jama Masjid. Approach road is good, can be reached by car or bus, but after passing through congested local fruit & vegetable market. Hiring guide for Chanderi local sightseeing is highly recommended as variety of monuments are scattered over large area, in very good condition. Without proper knowledge, we may miss important places.

One day trip to Chanderi will include Kaushik Mahal, Kila Kothi, Badal Mahal and Kati Ghati... Good to see if you are in around AshokNagar or Guna or surrounded places.
All can be covered in one day.
