Mandu



One of the greatest treasures of Madhya Pradesh, the fortress town of Mandu is perched on the southwestern edge of the Malwa Plateau at an altitude of 2000 feet and commands panoramic views of the Nimar Plains below.

A major landmark of India, the place is home to an impressive array of architectural marvels. Called by the Malwa Sultans as the "City of Joy," the place is also famous for the love of poet-prince Baz Bahadur for his beautiful consort Rani Roopmati
