Hoshang Shah's Tomb - Review

The Hoshang Shah’s Tomb is a part of the Hill Fort complex of Mandu. This place is an example of the rarest ancient rock cut architecture that dates back to the 5th and 6th centuries. These are just a few kilometers away from the headquarters of Dhar. These are a part of the 60 ancient caves cut monuments of that era. The oldest structures are namely Lohani Cave and the Sat Kothari Caves. The complex is divided into a few parts that are- Royal Complex, Hoshang Shah’s Tomb and Roopmati Pavilion.

The most important attractions in this complex are-

  • Hoshang’s Tomb: This is a mausoleum built of marble. It faces the entrance porch on the North but the entry is from the South. The gateways are decorated with exclusive carvings and designs that look like ornaments on the ruins. The blue enamel background is so stunning along the whole gateway. The main cenotaph of Hoshang Shah is beautiful. It is in the shape of a cascade and has a mihrab on it. There are other tombs also below this and a few among them are also as beautifully made of marble.
  • The Dharmashala: It is on the western side of the Hoshangh Shah’s tomb in the fort complex. It has a large hall with columns making sections within. The intricately carved flat roof represents Hindu style of architecture. On the contrary, the long narrow hall with vaulted ceiling is an example of pure Islamic style of architecture.

Hoshang Shah's Tomb, Mandu Reviews

  • The Hoshang Shah's tomb, Mandu is a wonderful example of Afgan art and architecture. The monument bears well-balanced dome with convoluted marble work. The uniqueness and the wonderful decoration on the southern doorway portray the lotus and the blue enamel stars.

  • The gardens leading to the main hall are very beautiful. The layout of the entire complex shows the mastery in architectural planning for that era. The central building is being renovated but still you will find the the place charming and relaxing. For some points free audio guide is available. From the main entrance, search for the small passageway to the tomb, else you will miss it.

  • Next place in mandav after jahaz mahal

  • Good historical place to visit,if you are going to mandav trip ,you can visit this historical tomb and lemon juice by vendors in front of the tomb is very famous so you should taste it ❤️

  • The place was under renovation during my visit. But whatever we could see was amazing. As all other places in Mandu, this is also rich in history. Ensure to hire a knowledgeable tour guide or else it will just be a simple walk. Must visit place.
