MANDAV also called Mandu or Mandavgarh is an ancient city situated in Dhar district in Malva region of western Madhya pradesh. It consist a huge natural habitat and a lot of ancient rumour that is why this city is called 'THE CITY OF GHOST'. It is well said in legendary rumour that mandav faced several battles and wars that lead it to this title. It was a great empire of several dynasties like khilji dyansty, mugal dynasty and several other kindoms.

Apart from this one more thing which attracts the attention of tourists and nature lovers is its huge number of monuments and natural beauty of the city.


Well the local people said in a very cool manner that mandav consist as much spots that one need to stay atleast 7 days to site all of them. So now we reached at 4 pm and now we were almost 300 km from bhopal with a bike trip that is why we tired a lot, so that we decided to take a hotel. For hotel we din't go for online search instead we took advised from some local civilians, and you know what we discovered a new place called Jain temple, where there was a facilty to stay at very low cost and great rooms and calm atmosphere at the same time. so we checked in, the atmosphere of that temple was really very nice and peaceful that helped us to regain our energy to discover new places instead of resting at rooms.

After refreshment we decided to go to sunset point and we reached there.

one thing i noticed at mandav is that it is one of the best place or i can say one of the best hill station and can be promoted as best place for weekends but this place is highly neglected by authorities. MANDAV has huge potantial to be a international tourist attraction, it is a perfect place for family outing and nature lovers and also for them who are passionate to discover new places and intrested in history

JAHAJ MAHAL - It is the one of the best place that attracts tourism to mandu. it is a huge place situated in between big pond that seems like a big ship is stand in the sea. it also consists HINDOLA MAHAL , ANCIENT MUSEUM , DAI KA MAHAL, so that you can spend lot of time here almost half day.

These palaces comes under ASI (ARCHEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF INDIA) so that are well maintained.

ECHO POINT MANDAV- We visited many spots and the one which attracted me the most was ECHO POINT, a place where three pillars are situated and a point where you need to stand there and speak loudly so that our voice reverberating one by one in all the pillars. that was the craziest part of our trip.

After halted two nights we decided to return back to our home. we will never forget this trip as we learn lot of things and gained some mature advises. MANDAV is great place for 2 days or 3 days budget trip as we only spent 2000 rs per person in our whole trip.

I really recommand all to visit once there to feel something different which will never felt anywhere else.

thank you so much guys. hola
