In and around Mandu is a great area to see and (perhaps) discover centuries old monuments. The monuments are architecturally and aesthetically very different from the one's we are used to seeing in Rajasthan. It is one of the oldest surviving palaces in India, yet, very forward in terms of design and feel. Wonderful place. Quite sexy/ very romantic -... More

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
