Mandu: Madhya Pradesh’s Monsoon Paradise

Mandav, commonly known as Mandu is an ancient fort city situated in the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh. The place is known to some people while others consider it a land of ruins. But like every other place, Mandu has a glorious past which adds to Madhya Pradesh’s history. 


Renowned for the love story of Baz Bahadur and Rani Rupmati, stunning monuments and forest covers, Mandu is becoming one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the region. Especially in the monsoon season, the place looks no less than any hill station. Situated near Indore, it’s ideal for a day trip or a short weekend trip. With several ghats and steep mountains on the way, a road trip from Indore to Mandu is an adventure itself. 

Although winter is the most pleasant time to visit this romantic city of Madhya Pradesh, you can expect lush greenery and weather that adds to the inherent romance and joy of the place during monsoon.  


A few years back Mandu was not that commercialized but now you can easily find luxurious hotels in this small town. What you can’t find here is a petrol pump within a radius of 12-15 km so make your arrangements accordingly if you decide to visit this hidden gem in Madhya Pradesh. However, locals do sell petrol in small quantities which is overpriced for obvious reasons. Also, carry your umbrellas and raincoats to be ready for the unexpected showers. You get to know about the Indo-Islamic and Afghan architecture which makes the forts, darwaazas, tombs and every intricate detail you can identify in this historical town so admirable and culturally rich. If you want to go back in time and learn about the history of the place, don’t miss the light and sound show organized every evening at Hindola Mahal (Jahaz Mahal premises). 


Apart from the town’s beauty and breathtaking views, you can also explore the peaceful and low-key villages nearby to get an insight into a normal rural life in India. Many waterfalls like Kokra Koh waterfall and Jogi Bhadak falls makes the landscape of this place even more interesting. If you are looking for a place with an amalgamation of history and natural beauty, Mandu should definitely be on your bucket list. Last weekend, more than 25,000 tourists visited Mandu which is also called, “City of Joy” for all the right reasons!
