Monuments of mandu, Madhya pradesh

Been there recently?

It is a town in the Vindhya Mountain range, dotted with protected monuments. The once-ruined city now has more than 60 protected monuments that include forts, caves, stepped wells, lakes, and palaces, among other monuments. For admirers of the Indo-Islamic style of architecture, Mandu is the place to be. It is a surreal feeling walking around the city, as the well-maintained ancient structures that crop up at every corner seem alive with life. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is inside a fortified wall, 37 kilometres long, that has 12 entrance points. Some of its remains give goosebumps to history-loving visitors. For the ease of tourists, the 60-odd monuments are divided into three groups. Important monuments at Mandu are the Jahaz Mahal, Rani Roopmati Pavilion, Rani Roopmati Palace, Hindola Mahal, Baz Bahadur Palace, and the 3 remaining doorways of the fortified wall. Mandu, also known as Mandav, is about 100 kilometres from Indore, one of the larger cities in Madhya Pradesh. Indore is also the nearest rail and air link.

Nearby Places to See


Songadh Fort
The once-majestic fortress of the Mandu kings, situated on a cliff in the Vindhya hills, now lies in ruins, with only the massive front door and a few walls of the fortified interior still standing. Located only 5 kilometres from Mandu, the fort is surrounded on three sides by deep ravines.

Jahangirpur Gate
It is a fortified structure built 8 kilometres from Mandu to keep an eye on potential invaders. Perched on a hill with sweeping views of the plains below, it was the primary gateway to the kingdom of Mandu. However, the gate’s steps and even the gate itself are in ruins today; only the buildings on either side of the gate remain standing.

Jhanwar/Jhawar Valley
Approximately 40 kilometres from Mandu, this valley offers a peaceful retreat in the lap of nature. Landscape features such as rolling hills, grassy plains, rushing rivers, and rocky outcrops invite visitors to the valley top.

Kakra Khoh Waterfall
This seasonal waterfall, about 80 feet high, can be found 6 kilometres from Mandu, in a valley that is densely forested.
