Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal), Mandu

4.7
#1 of 30 in Things to do in Dhar District
Architectural Building Landmark
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. A visit to Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dhar District vacation planner to plot your vacation.
