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.

Extremely beautiful and well maintained. The monument are in good condition. Clean and pollution free place. One side is valley and other side is fields. Don't miss when you come to Mandu. You will get good lime juice and fruits below the pavilion. Instant photo just in ₹20/- also available.
It's good place for family visit. No guide facility was available during our visit. Video camera fees. For still photography no charges. Top view is beautiful
Grab the tickets before 6:30 PM and you can enjoy the beauty of place till 7:30 PM. when you will reach at the top position then only you can understand the real importance of this place. Visited here twice in a year and both the experiences were amazing. Enjoyed the Trip with Family.
Fabulous. Try to locate Narmada River after reaching the South side. It usually is visible near the horizon like a winding strip. A must visit.
Simply great place. You can stay full day to rediscover glorious history.
