Relive the glory of Mandu's historic ruins with a 360-degree walkthrough

Imagine a house in the middle of a water body — a palace rather! If that seems like a wallpaper for your computer or some surreal, out-of-this-world image, then we'll tell you that it is actually the Jahaj Mahal, in the city of Mandu.

The ruins of the city of Mandavgarh — also known as Mandu, and enfolded by twin lakes — still bear testimony to the grandeur of its exquisite Afghan architecture. The most famous of its structures is the Jahaj Mahal — a palace surrounded by water; a ship about to embark on a voyage.

Ruins of Mandu

A 360-degree walk-through features this very palace, the famous high terraces of Mandu and the enormous Hindola Mahal. Witnessing something that’s deeply embedded in the past is a delight. The city has existed since the 6th Century BC, and the stone and mortar it was made with has somehow, successfully withstood the passage of time.

Hindola Mahal, which you see later in the walk-through, is a large meeting hall that depicts the architectural style of the era.

Watch this to experience it virtually; visit to experience it in reality.
