Man Mandir Palace is not only the most spectacular palace in the city of Gwalior but it surely features among the best in the entire North India. Located within the premises of the majestic Gwalior Fort in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, the palace is an architectural gem in true sense with a matchless grandiose and beauty. This breathtaking palace was built by legendary Raja Man Singh between 14th and 15th century.
The Man Mandir Palace may have lost some of its former glory to the time and its trappings, it still has a lot that gives indications of its grandiose past. Traces of glory can be found in the walls are their portrayal, the rooms and the underground dungeon. It’s the same dungeon where the cruel Mughal emperor Aurangzeb had his sibling – Murad - incarcerated and executed.
A visit to the Man Mandir Palace is like revisiting the pomp and splendor of the Rajput culture that existed in the medieval era. The most interesting site in the palace is the Jauhar Pond, where Rajput queens would commit suicide after their Kings had been conquered in battle. When in Gwalior, do visit this pinnacle of architecture and experience history close up.
