Madan Mahal Fort - Review
Although not a very popular site, the fort attracts tourists with its serene surroundings and silent disposition. A number of tourists visiting the fort also visit the balancing rocks and other interesting places in the area. The fort was in reality a pleasure palace of the MadanSngh, who was the tenth Gond king and the son of Rani Durgavati, who was the famous Gond queen. During her rule the fort was used as a watch tower to watch if any enemies were trying to get in for attack. It is estimated that the fort was built in the year 1100 AD.
This magnificent fort is located on top of a small hill of about 515 m in height. The fort is built on a single base rock and is a masterpiece in its construction. You have to climb 200 to 250 steps to reach the fort. The walk through the path leading the fort is very exciting with tall trees and rocks on either side. As you reach the top, you are welcomed by an impressive arched gateway of the fort. Once inside the fort you will notice the utter silence of the place.
Some of the attractions of the fort are a stable, war rooms, and a main chamber, which looks grand and is admired by all. There is also a reservoir inside the fort, which is now not in a good condition. Watch out for underground tunnels and hidden treasures as told by the locals!!
From the fort you get a panoramic view of the Jabalpur city and the surrounding country side, which is marvellous sight.

Madan Mahal Fort, Jabalpur Reviews
Really nice place to visit, however one should not stay at this place after 5 due to its isolated location. This fort get isolated in the evening and it creates a scary feeling. Best for those who love thrill.
It’s historical place listed in reserve place of India. You can find one person there guarding this place. Easily accessible from Jabalpur railway station... ask for autos to take you fort they ask random numbers but it’s not far from station 6-7kms... should not charge more than 50 rupees... break your journey to avoid money loot.... it’s one time watch place as location provides very good view of the city and on the way you can see pond in between and some natural beautiful rocks with different shapes...
Rani Durgavati Fort it's just amazing but thoda sa government ko us par Dhyan dena chahiye Kyunki bahut Jaga Tut Chuka hay
This is the fort famously known as madan Mahal it is situated on the hills of madan Mahal. You can reach this place by stairs and the journey took about 10-15 minutes but once you reach the destination you will be very disappointed by the condition of this monument. From here you can see whole Jabalpur city but government did not developed this beautiful place as a tourist attraction it deserves to be, but the beauty of this hill and tracking upto this fort is a great experience. You may encounter some goons or criminals here so it's better to visit this place with a large group. Overall ignorance of officials made this beautiful fort which used to stand tall overwatching whole Jabalpur into a mere ruin.
I have been here once with my friends (boys & girls both). This is not at all a good place to go when your group has girls. As it's not a safe place, and not so secured. This doesn't seem to look like a historical fort as it's not being maintained. Not even a single security for visitors. And I don't think it's even popular among visitors. Nobody wants to go there, as therest nothing except a historical fort. Make sure you take care of your safety, then only visit this fort...
