The Jahaz Mahal is said to have been constructed during the reign of Muhammad Shah I Khilji. During the transfer of Malwa from Dhar to Mandu many artisans were also transferred and brought here to build forts, palaces, tombs, museums, etc. these artisans who came from Delhi were experts in the Tughlaqid style of architecture depicted through the simplicity in planning and design. The Jahaz Mahal was built during the latter part of the 15th century, on a narrow strip of land between two lakes called the Munj Talao to the west and the Kapur Talao to the east. This palace has an adjoining palace also known as the Taweli Mahal. There are a number of water bodies and fountains around the palace and the beautiful garden circling it. There is also a fantastic bath pool at the back side of the Jahaz Mahal.

Jahaz Mahal, Mandu Reviews - Write a Review
Quite good place to visit. Entry is free and not crowded place, therefore suitable place to visit.
No maintainace and nothing to see or view much , it has a small kids playing ground around and people come to play and walk.
Phool walon ki sher...in mehrauli market
Beautiful monument however, no maintenance by the authorities. Surrounded reservoir of Jahaz Mahal is also filthy in which its floating ship like reflection can be seen.
In Mahraului market and not very crowded. Good heritage with less view by taurist.
