    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 .

    This place which is Ruins right now literally derives its name from a bloody Incident.
    War between king of chanderi and Mugals was so Violent that blood actually flowed down from this gate.

    This is Chanderi fort complex only and you can walk down to this place from Fort Campus only.

    Visit this place either on Sunrise or Sunset ti get the best Views of Old Chanderi town.

    A monument dedicated to daughter of ruling king, the story associated with this monument is not very clear, though the monument has its own charm, has quite distinctive architewcture and worth a visit. The road leading to this monument is not huge and you might have to consider walking down till this place.

    Perched atop the hill, its not famous as its other temples but the place has such serenity and peace, it can only be experienced and not expressed.
    The history behind is to be heard from the locals and have never tasted water like the pure water that flows inside the temple.

    Raja Rani Mahal or Rajmahal is actually made up of two separate palaces. The grand Raja Mahal is a seven-storey structure which has now been attached to the smaller Rani Mahal. However both are made in completely different styles and do not clearly belong to the same time period.
    It is a beautiful structure constructed from grey and white sandstones and has elaborate carvings to display. The palace is truly a magnificent structure that has large courtyards, elegant stairways, beautifully carved pillars, and open pavilions on the terrace. The palace has an underground passage connecting it to another palace standing nearby.

    This implies that the Raja Mahal must have been originally built by the Khilji rulers in the 15th century. The Rani Mahal, however, appears to be an earlier construction. The upper portions of both the Raja and Rani Mahal, which are in the Bundela style, indicate that these structures were repaired and built upon in the 17th century when the Bundelas came to control the region. Reeling in a state of disrepair previously, efforts are now on to restore and preserve the palaces. Khilji Serai This serai or rest house was built during the reign of Gyasuddin Khilji by Qazi ibn Mehran. Although in ruins today,

    Chakla Baoli is rectangular shaped step-well, built during the Khilji reign. As per the inscription at the entrance this baoli was meant for the women of the noble family.

    At the west side stairs of the stepwell there are two cenotaphs at both ends, in Rajput architecture.

    On the left side of the cenotaph are two tombs – one belonging to Shiekh Raji Mohammad’s wife (nephew of Sufi saint Hazrat Baba Farid Ganj-e- Shakar), while the second tomb is nameless without an inscription found on it.

    One of the main gateways in the city fortifications, "The Delhi Darwaza" was probably given this name as it faced north towards Delhi. Today it forms the main entrance to the buzy Sadar Bazaar, Chanderi’s main shopping area.

    Ticket - free for all

    Must Know - this area is very busy & crowded , be clear there is no parking place nearby, so park your vehicle on main road little far away .

    On the walls flanking the gate can be found large carvings of soldiers mounted on elephants and holding weapons ( which is now partly broken). What is most surprising about this depiction is that such figural representations are almost never found on Muslim constructions. An inscription in Persian and Arabic above the arch of the gate states that the construction of the gate began during the reign of Sultan Nusrat Shah, under the direction of Dilawar Khan Ghori. It was completed in the year 1411 when Hoshung Shah was the Sultan of Malwa.
