Ranked 5 among Places to Visit in Mandu
Time Required: 1-2 hrs
Hindola Mahal in Mandu is a very popular tourist attraction which means Swinging Palace as per its English translation. The grandeur of the Durbar halls can be seen in the opulent palace which served as a royal court to Ghiyas-al-Din Sultan during his reign. It perfectly portrays the Malwa-Sultanate architecture. The innovative structure of the sculpture combined with the superb technique attracts thousands of tourists to pay a visit every year. The Mahal was constructed from sandstone with exquisitely carved columns with the provision of hot and cold water connected with the rooms situated underground.
Hindol Mahal is now a T-shaped building which is being used as an audience hall or an open-air theatre. It is believed to have been constructed in 1425 under the reign of Hoshang Shah but was later modified to what it currently is under the rule of Ghiyasuddin Khilji in the 15th century. The simplicity of its architecture is what separated it from the rest of the monuments. Munj Talao which is a collection of ruined monument covers the Hindola Mahal in the north and provides a fantastic tour to people who are interested in archives. It is a truly perfect place for someone who loves history and royal architecture. The exquisite beauty and the scenic beauty of the place is worth visiting.
