Rani Rupmati Pavilion in Mandu

Rupmati Pavilion is situated on the very edge of Mandu Fort. It is a very romantic building, a perfect setting for fairytale romance. Nevertheless, unfortunately, the love story of Baz Bahadur and Rupmati had a tragic end. It is said that Akbar attacked Mandu for the sake of Roopmati and Baz Bahadur fled Mandu leaving Rupmati to poison herself.

"Rani Roopmati Pavilion is the southern most monument of the many monuments in the Mandu fort of Mandav. This was built to enable Rani Roopmati to see the River Narmada and perform certain religious rituals,without steeping out of the fort of Mandu. From here the majestic view of the Neemar valley can be seen, rising up into the Malwa Plateau. On a very clear day,if lucky, you might even see the Narmada river. Final climb to this place is steep. Inside the pavilion the stairs are spiral and higher than the normal. To make the matters worse the stairway is dark. Recommended that you carry a torch and mind your steps. Bon chance"
