An Ancient city you might not have heard of!

MANDU, MADHYA PRADESH, INDIA

Mandu is an ancient city in the present-day Mandav area of Dhar district. I happened to visit this beautiful place through my college visit. The fortress town is celebrated for its architecture.

Mandu, due to is strategic position and natural defenses, was an important position and natural defenses, was an important place with a rich and varied history. Mandu was an important military outpost and can be gauged by the circuit of the battlemented wall, which is 37km. The wall encloses a large number of palaces, mosques, Jain temples of the 14th century and other buildings.

Location: 35 km from Dhar city

The fortress is about 100km from Indore.

The word ‘Mandu’ is believed is believed to be a Prakrit corruption of ‘Mandapa Durga’. The Inscription is dated 612 VS which indicates that Mandu was a flourishing town in 6th Century

Mandu gained prominence in the 10th and 11th century under the Paramaras (Paramaras dynasty was an Indian dynasty that ruled Malwa and surrounding areas in west-central Indian in 9th and 14th centuries).

The town of Mandu is perched on the Vindhya Range extending for 13km while overlooking the plateau of Malwa to the north and the valley of the Narmada River to the south which acted as natural defenses for the fort-capital to the Paramaras.
