Celebration in stone: The walls of this city in central India hold in romance and tales of a time gone by…
Some time spent here and every brick, every building, every nook and cranny in this fortress city will start whispering stories of the legendary love of prince BazBahadur and Rani Roopmati.
Though this saga unfolded in mid-16th century, Mandu itself took shape in the hands of the Parmar kings in the eighth century. Mandu was originally called Mandapa Durg, meaning ‘a fort with pillared halls.’ It is also said that emperor Jahangir once exclaimed, “I know of no other place that is so pleasant in climate and with such attractive scenery as Mandu.”
