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.

Very good place to visit. Best time is during rainy season. Mandu is travellers paradise. Parking facility available. Entry fee is 25/- per head. Bring drinking water along during summers. Small market outside the premise is also there.
Very calm place. You can enjoy the quietness of this place if you like heritage structures. The views from the top floor are lovely. The gardens are kept net and clean. It's a decent walk and can get very hot in summers. Good place to photography the nearby mandu town which was a hub of activity in the days of old.
