Reviews of Mandu • 3
Mandu is widely regarded as an architectural delight. If you are a history buff, you should definitely take a trip here. This quaint city was the result of the union of Prince Baz Bahadur and Rani Roopmati. It is also home to one of the oldest erected monuments in India. It is one of the best places to visit near Ahmedabad. Mandu is a beautiful city who architecture and monumental ruins bring the ancient world to light. The place is indeed like travelling back in time with its forts, palaces and structures. About 7 hours away by road from the city of Pune, we thought it would be worth delving in to the history of our country and thus included this place on my list of short breaks from Ahmedabad. You will surely return having been enriched and with loads of pictures to tell of your adventures and experiences.Distance from Ahmadabad - 372 Km
Mandu is a strategically located city and was an important military outpost. This can be gauged through the long 37 km-wall that protected the city. Within these walls lie many palaces, Jain temples, 14th century structures and reservoirs (kunds). Given that all sights in Mandu are within 5 km or less, it is ideal to be explored on a bicycle.
Mandu is really an amazing historical place to visit and can be completed in just one day. This place is accessible only by road and is really worth a visit !
