Mahal Gulara

Mahal Gulara is situated on the Burhanpur-Amravati Road, about 21 km from Burhanpur, in Madhya Pradesh. It lies to the east of Singhkheda village. Major point of attraction are the two palaces built by Shah Jahan, during the reign of his father Jahangir.

There is a story behind the construction of Mahal Gulara Ė it is that when Shah Jahan visited Burhanpur, he fell in love with a beautiful dancer 'Gulara'. Shah Jahan was so impressed with her that he later married her. He constructed two beautiful palaces here surrounded by beautiful gardens and a water fall between them. The village was named after her name 'Mahal Gulara'.
