About Mandu

Mandu is also known as Mandavgad. This fort town is located in the western region of Madhya Pradesh The capital of the Sultanate of Malwa can be approached either from the plains of Dhar or from the mountain pass at Manpur. Towards the end of the 13th century, it came under the sway of the Sultans of Malwa, the first of whom named it Shadiabad - 'city of joy'. From its golden age in the 14th century to the surrender of its rulers to Mughal forces, two centuries later, Mandu attracted the eyes of every conqueror-native or foreigner. Perched along the Vindhyan ranges at an altitude of 2000 feet, the first sight of Mandu is impressive as there is a chasm, a deep wooded ravine that is crossed by a narrow bridge and on the skyline is the largest standing fortified city in the world. It is one of India’s most romantic and picturesque sites. This fortress town on a rocky outcrop, is celebrated for its fine architecture. Mandu celebrates in stone the life and love of the poet-prince Baz Bahadur for his consort, Rani Roopmati. The balladeers of Malwa still sing of the romance of these royal lovers. High on the crest of a hill, Rani Roopmati's pavilion gazes down at Baz Bahadur's palace, a magnificent expression of Afgan architecture. The buildings of Mandu can be divided in three groups: the Royal Enclave Group, the Village Group and the Rewa Kund Group.
