Jahaz Mahal or Ship Palace at Mandu
The video features Jahaz Mahal or Ship Palace at Mandu in the State of Madhya Pradesh in India. The palace reflects the spirit of romantic beauty and hilarity of the imperial life of the Muslim rulers of India.
Situated between two artificial lakes – Munj and Kapur, this two-storied architectural marvel built in 15th century is so named as it appears like a ship floating in water. With its open pavilions, balconies overhanging the water and an open terrace; Jahaz Mahal is an imaginative recreation in stone of a royal pleasure craft.
It is said that to watch Jahaz Mahal’s real beauty one must view it from the uppermost terrace of Taveli Mahal in the midst of the rainy season when the tanks are full and the nature around is all green.
Situated about 100 km away from the city of Indore in Madhya Pradesh, Mandu is a fortress town on the Vindhya Ranges of Central India.
