The Jahangir Mahal

The Jahangir Mahal

Built by the Rajput Bundela King Bir Singh Deo in 1626, the Jahangir Mahal was named as a tribute to the Mogul Emperor Jahangir who only spent one night at the palace. Stone elephants flanking the main entrance, six domed pavilions at the corners and at mid-points along the walls and decorative Chhatris (cupolas) are amongst many notable architectural features of this sandstone palace.
