Jahaz Mahal - Review
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
Very small in size and nothing much to know here, but place is clean and properly maintained due to small in size. If you are specially coming here for experiencing some good piece of architecture, this is not the place.
There is nothing there other than the ruins of jahaz mahal. Dont go there. This place doesn't need ur attention.
Jahaz Mahal (in Urdu Language ‘Jahaz’ means “Ship” and ‘Mahal’ means “Palace”, the “Ship Palace”), is located next to Hauz-i-Shamsi in Mehrauli, Delhi on its northeastern corner. It was so named, since its reflection (illusion) in the surrounding reservoir looked like a ship floating on a lake. It is inferred to have been built during the Lodi dynasty period (1452–1526) as a pleasure resort, Sarai or an inn.
The place is not maintained properly. It doesn't have a proper parking area. And the ambience is also not exciting.
Its a small historic monument next to shamshi talab...nothing great...u will have to make way thru the congested mehrauli mkt...
