Mandu is an ancient fort city in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, surrounded by stone walls dotted with darwazas (gateways). It’s also known for its Afghani architectural heritage. Landmark buildings include Hoshang Shah’s Tomb, a domed marble mausoleum, and the vast Jami Masjid mosque, with courtyards framed by colonnades. The imposing, centuries-old Jahaz Mahal palace stands between 2 lakes. The 45 km parapet of walls that encircle Mandu are punctuated by 12 gateways. Most notable of these is Delhi Darwaza, the main entrance to the fortress city. The Hindola Mahal shows superb and innovative techniques in its ornamental facade, delicate trelliswork in sandstone and beautifully moulded columns. Rani Roopmati’s pavilion was the retreat of the lovely queen, from where she could see the Narmada flowing through the Nimar plains far below. Baz Bahadur’s Palace was built in the early 16th century, and features spacious courtyards surrounded by halls and high terraces which afford a superb view of the surrounding countryside.
