One of the best places in MP. All Mahal's are best architecture. There is a light and sound show at Hindola Mahal in evening. Everybody must watch that show. Evening time is the best time for sightseeing of Mandu.

- Have a guide with you or make a well researched plan for yourself and only then embark on to your trip.
- If you visit this place during the winters, make sure you carry woolen clothes along because it gets really cold at nights.
- Forget all your stresses and drench yourself in the love that this has to offer.
- Medication and food facilities are available at frequent intervals, so it shall not be an issue.
