Baz Bahadur Palace




Baz Bahadur Palace is a fine specimen of Afghan architecture. Situated on the outskirts of Mandu, on the slopes of a hill, the palace was built by Baz Bahadur, the legendary musician-ruler of Mandu who was a contemporary of Mughal Emperor Akbar. The palace is a reminder of the tragic love story of Baz Bahadur and his muse, Rani Roopmati. There's a wide courtyard in the palace, encircled by halls and high terraces. As one climbs up the hill from the palace, one can reach {Roopmatiís Pavilion}, on top of the hill. The nearest airport and railway station are both at Indore (100 km away).
