Here comes another trip of mine. This time rode with friends to a place called Mandu in the State of Madhya Pradesh in India. More information about the place can we read on WikiPedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandu,_Madhya_Pradesh
So here goes our trip:
A few bad patches of road along the way:
Tents by term..but cozy and extremely spacious inside. At MPTDC's Malwa Resort, Mandu
The magnificient Jahaz Mahal!
The Kapur Tank...all for entertainment, rather a pleasurely boat ride for the lovely ladies of the bygone Mandu Era.
The Munja tank in the backdrop of the Jal Mahal
All shattered by time
The Hindola Mahal (Swinging Palace)
And this is where all the swinging used to happen. The swings were tied on to those arches and the pretty ladies would go "WHEEEEEEEEEE!"
Not to be missed...Daal Baafla, with Laddu arriving later. One of the most awesome-st dinner I ever had.
Towards Roopmati's pavilion
The approach road, which we skipped
Resting place for the troops
A few narrow passages inside the pavilion
Water cistern with filtration facilities
The Mandu Lake
Monkeys at peace
Dai Ki Chhoti Bahan Ka Mahal...long name that!
