Ship palace or Jahaj Mahal is a beautiful palace built between two artificial lakes. The best time to visit is during monsoon when both lakes are full of water with all around greenery. The palace is well maintained by ASI and is worth a visit.

The magnificent structure of Jahaz Mahal is spread over a narrow strip of land in between Munj Talao and Kapur Talao. It best captures the medieval romance of Mandu.The history of Jahaz Mahal is closely related to the rich history of Mandu itself.

Amazing architecture! I couldn't spend enough time like it deserves. And the number of pools here is staggering. It shows the lavish lifestyle of Mughals. Dudes sure had a good time ruling 😂

One would get mesmerised by the building , planning and architecture of 15th century . This palace is built between two huge tanks , which gives the impression that large ship is anchored near a port.
