About Mandu
Mandu, also known by the name of Mandavgarh, is located in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
Mandu was earlier known by the name of Shadiabad, which was christened by a Muslim ruler of
that time, Alauddin Khilji. The ancient town of Mandu is popular because of its ancient history
and rocky outcrop. The town was earlier the defence capital of the Rajput Parmara rulers, who
ruled Mandu.
The attractions present in the region include two fortified enclosures that were built to protect
the Royal Enclave and Royal Palace of Baz Bahadur, which is located within the boundary of
this town. Jahaz Mahal, which was built in the 15th century, is one of the most popular
attractions here. It is considered as an important part of the Royal Enclave.
The town of Mandu is a perfect example of Afghan architecture and has its association with the
legends of Prince Baz Bahadur and Singer Roopmati. Other attractions in the region include
canals, old baths and crafted pavilions. There are also caves made out of rock with wall
paintings and carvings on the ceiling. Some of the popular monuments found here are Alamgir,
Bhangi, Rampol Darwaza, Jehangir Gate and Tarapur Gate.
The climatic condition of Mandu is tropical throughout the year. Summers are here from the
month of March to June and are mildly hot. Winters are here in the months of October to
February and are cold with much colder nights. The best time to visit Mandu is from July to
September.
Mandu has no airport of its own and the nearest airport is Indore Ahilyabai Holker Airport, which
is 100 kilometres away. The domestic terminal of Indore is connected to major destinations like
Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Jaipur and Ranchi.
The nearest railway station is Ratlam railway station, which is 125 kilometres from Mandu. The
station is an important junction and also connects other major cities of India. Taxis are available
from the airport and train station that can connect Mandu easily.
Mandu is also connected by bus services that ply between regions of Madhya Pradesh, Indore
and Bhopal. Most of these buses are deluxe buses and connects Mandu with Ratlam and
Ujjain, which is about 125 kilometres from the region.
