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.
