The place is neat and clean and plenty of restoration work is going on. It depicts a building built like a Ship surrounded on all sides with water bodies. Worth a visit with some local Guide to tell you all about it in detail. The palace and other buildings involve plenty of walking and climbing which old people and infirm... More

The architecture is really wonderful. Jahaj Mahal is well maintained. Garden is green. Pond is clean. Not suitable for senior citizens with leg/knee problems (like any other places in Mandu). My humble request to all the tourists is - do not throw any garbage or spit inside such nice historical places. Hindola Mahal is also inside this premises. Audio Guide... More

This group of monuments in Mandu are pretty interesting. The attractions are all grouped into various sectors depending on their location. This was definitely part of the best group. Do not forget to check out the old shop ruins at the further end of this group.

The fee per person is Rs 15 for Indian nationals. The time is from 6 am to 6 pm. Do not forget to see the hindola mahal too which is... More

This is a enormous palace with exciting history. The location and the architecture is breathtakingly beautiful and provides for a stunning location for the photoshoots, specially pre wedding. The palace is specially pristine in the monsoon with the water surrounding the palace and the clouds hovering around the windows. The entry fee of just Rs. 20/- is an added bonus.

Good views of the whole Royal Enclave from the upper levels. Let your imagination run rampant to see the ladies of the harem here. Interesting and architecturally impressive!

This is surrounded by lakes on all four sides and constructed between them on a thin mould of soil, giving a view of a ship from the top. This mahal was built as summer place by the king and spent time for pleasure with his queen. The architecture is quite fascinating and interesting too. The views from the top and... More
