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
Felt great to see our old heritage.. But there is no proper maintenance by our's govt. The preservation process is very slow besides the portion recently preserved is also not looked after well.
A good place for people who would be interested in historic artifacts and ruins.
Very old heritage Must visit once to see such a wonderful place
it represents ol hostory of jammu . love to see it.
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 💓
