Mandu or Mandavgad is a ruined city in the present-day Mandav area of the Dhar district.Mandu, due to its strategic position and natural defences, was an important place with a rich and varied history.

You need at least a day to cover majority of the famous monuments in Mandu. A guide is a must but beware of fake ones. Rani roopmati palace complex, jahaz Mahal complex and nearby structures like Jami masjid, hoshand Shah tomb are the main monuments.

Mandu have several monuments spread across different locations and hence you need a car as well as a local guide for a full day to do justice to the beautiful monuments of Mandu and understand their historic significance. Its advisable to carry water, sunscreen and cap/scarf along. Though the monuments are managed by ASI , there are no official ASI... More

Mandu has a lot to offer considering it is an offbeat destination. There are many monuments around this small mountain town and its charm is retained because of its limited accessibility. It's a short drive from Indore and has a nice view point on the way (forest & waterfall). The monuments are mostly around the same area and can be... More

Strategically perched at the edge of the Malwa plateau and overlooking the Narmada valley to its south, Mandu boasts of a long and chequered history stretching all the way back to the 5th or 6th venture C.E. It has, over the centuries, changed hands from the Parmars to the Delhi... More
