About the Book

This beautiful guidebook explores the medieval hill-fort of Mandu, in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh, through its stunning architecture, history and legends.

Through the ages, emperors, historians and travelers have been overwhelmed by the romance of Mandu, perched on a rocky spur of the Vindhyan ranges. It has been described as the city of joy, a celebration in stone, whose medieval rulers, the Malwa Sultans, built exquisite palaces and mosques, between the 14th and 16th centuries. Hoshang Shah’s Tomb, Jami Masjid, Jahaz Mahal, the picturesque kunds, which fill to the brim during the rains, stand testimony to the grand vision of their patrons, while the songs sung by the balladeers of Malwa pay tribute to the star-crossed love of the poet-prince Baz Bahadur and his beautiful consort, Roopmati.

The guidebook also includes a well-researched section on Indore, the gateway to Mandu, and nearby destinations like Maheshwar, Omkareshwar, Dhar and Bagh Caves.

With well over a hundred specially-commissioned photographs, illustrations and maps, and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.
