Mandu or Mandavgad is one of the two hill stations of Madhya Pradesh which is 62 km from Indore. It was originally the fort capital of the Parmar rulers of Malwa which was also known as Shadibad, means the city of joy (Anand Nagari). It is the largest standing fortified town in the world. Mandu is visited for its architectural significance and as an idyllic getaway. The subsequent ruling clans built grand palaces like the Jahaz and Hindola Mahals, ornate pavilions, and other architectural gems. The walls of Mandu having circumference of 75 km still look the same as they did some 300 years ago. There is an overflowing fullness of mango, tamarind and banyan trees and the city is particularly beautiful immediately after the monsoons and an emerald green landscape full of waterfalls.

This city is the celebration of love and life, a tribute to the tender love of the poet prince Baz Bahadur for his consort, Rani Roopmati. Roopmati Pavilion perched atop a hill, an outstanding example of Afghan architecture still gazes down fondly upon Baz Bahadur’s Palace. The balladeers of Malwa still sing songs of their love.

Main attractions to visit here are The Darwazas, The Royal Enclave Jahaj Mahal, Hindola Mahal, Jami Masjid, The Central Group of Hoshang Shah's Tomb, Rewa Kund Group and Roopmati's Pavilion. The best time to visit here is between July to March.
