Mubarak Mandi Palace - Review
The oldest building in Jammu, Mubarak Mandi Palace is a magnificent building that served as the Palace of the Dogra rulers. This strong, sturdy building which has seen a lot of fires and earthquakes still remains mostly intact and doesn’t let go of its old charm.
Built in the Rajasthani, European baroque and Mughal styles of architecture the Palace dates back to 1824. Darbar Hall Complex, the Pink Palace, Royal Courts buildings, Gol Ghar Complex, Nawa Mahal, Rani Charak Palace, Hawa Mahal, the Toshakhana palace and the Sheesh Mahal are some of the main structures that form the palace.
A government heritage site, Mubarak Mandi palace is the main landmark of the city. It tells a tale of the old glory days and the no. of Maharajas that found solace here. The Palace holds its ground even after being marred by fire over 36 times and a few earthquakes.
A part of the Palace houses the Dogra art Museum which is frequented by art lovers in the region. It is set in the Pink Hall and showcases a rich collection of miniature paintings from different styles and cities. The hall derives its name from the pink plastered walls.
Other attractions in the Palace that lure tourists are the Sheesh Mahal and a few special exhibits in the museum. The Sheesh Mahal or glass palace is made entirely of Glass. A gold painted bow and Arrow that belonged to the famous Mughal king Shahajahan is kept for display.
They say that to become one with a place you have to understand its history and what better place to get acquainted with Jammu’s past than its former seat of power?

Mubarak Mandi Palace, Jammu Reviews
Fantastic and Historical place Till that no govt take care of that building For last 6 year we see working on that heritage building but till date not much work done by authorities They r fooling us
Mubarak Mandi Palace is the rich cultural heritage of Dogras, Jammu.. It also has a museum where very important and precious jewels, clothes, arms, utensils and painting etc are placed. The palace is in destructive position but the authority has taken the initiative of renovating it and the work has been started. Once completed it will be again the Royal residence 💓
In this museum u can see a rich variety of our culture and heritage .. old coins and so many old artifacts .. u will feel proud on ur dogra culture .. 😊😊
Mubarak Mandi is a palace in Jammu, India. The palace was the royal residence of the maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir from the Dogra dynasty. It was their main seat till 1925 when maharadja Hari Singhmoved to the Hari Niwas Palace in the northern part of Jammu. The palace is located in the heart of the old walled city of Jammu and overlooks the Tawiriver.
This is really awesome place to visit. It will take you back to the time of Raja Maharajas. You would love to spend sometime there and also love to watch the amazing architect.. But human encroachment there will also make you realize that they these beautiful monuments wouldn't exist for longer time.
