Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal), Mandu

4.8
Admire the marvelous architectural solution of Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal), the ruins of an elegant two-story stone palace sandwiched between two water tanks. This 120 m (394 ft) long, Afghan-style complex features open pavilions with balconies overlooking the water, creating an illusion that the building is floating. Built between 1436 and 1439, this masterfully carved palace has numerous elaborate curling patterns set in the floor, an ingenious way of directing rainwater to a tank. Enjoy views of the water and exquisite gardens from one of the tiny domes, turrets, and balconies. Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Mandu Edition.
