Rani Roopmati Pavilion - Review
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
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.
It's been first time I had visited Rani Roopmati pavilion, the atmosphere throught the destination was completely clear. The best part was the scene,the beauty,the greenery and the rainy season added more flavours to our journey.The road was clear and smooth. The monument were well maintained by the M.P. State government. The only thing lacked us is the fuel station at that particular tourist point. There was not a single one. But over all it was a great experience of our historical era...
Visit to Rani Roopmati Palace is always a pleasurable moment. To go through such height and view the greenery over there is blissful. That mighty monument with such great architecture is lovable.
If you love history and related thing then I am sure that you will love this fort also, from top of the fort you can easily enjoy the view of 30 km distance. Avoid this trip in summer but rainy and winter season will make it your experience unforgettable.
A beautiful historical place to visit. You can feel cool air over there. A beautiful and green garden over there to see. View from the palace is just wow One will love to visit there.
