About Rani Roopmati Pavilion, Mandu
The Rani Roopmati’s Pavilion is a part of the Hill Fort complex of Mandu. This place is an example of the rare most 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 cave 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.
This palace stands a view beyond the Baz bahadur Palace. The construction of this palace dates back to the early 16th and 17th centuries. The original structure was plain in its design but had an exclusive architectural style. It has a low based large hall with two rooms on either side. The slopes of the lower part of the rooms are quite sloped and are heavy as compared to the structure of the hall. The corridors in the basement have stunning pillars with arched basement as the roof and the base for the next level built on the slope. The reason for the slope is that the monument is built on the slopes of a hilly terrain. The western part that juts out has a cistern chamber that was used to store rainwater during those times. The modern thought and planning even so many years ago is really remarkable.

Rani Roopmati Pavilion, Mandu Reviews
Awesome Place. Very nice architecture. Beautiful views of Mandav Valleys from the pavilion. Must be visited in monsoon. There are 20 to 25 steps to be climb but it is easy. Marvellous view from top of the pavilion. Parking is available. Para gliding is available from top of the pavilion.
Place is very clean and picturesque. You can see the most amazing landscapes of the plains and the Narmada river from the top of the pavillion. We went to the pavillion during noon time when it becomes quite warm, a better time would have been about 4-5 pm if not early morning. There is a fast food restaurant and a few shops selling snacks outside the entry gate.
Good place to be. Beautiful scenery all around once you make it to the top. There is inclined path apart from steps, which make it easier to get it one top.
Fantastic place with historical importance, very well maintained compared to other places of historical importance in India. Visit it between 4-6 in the evening for golden light. Great opportunity for photos.
Very nice place ... Architecture is good...you need to know places history to think about building architecture...even small things in here have a major role to play
