Darya Khan's Tomb and Hathi Mahal

Location: 

Darya Khan’s Tomb and Hathi Mahal, Mandu are two of the more important tourist attractions here.

Darya Khan ruled Mandu from 1510 A.D to 1526 A.D. The tomb built by himself before his death stored his body after he passed away and is a grand specimen of Muslim art and architecture. Located between the Hosai village and the Rewa Kund, it is square in shape and is supported by enormous arches. The four corners house four little domes with the main tomb in the central part of the room. The walls of the tomb once exhibited fine and intricate arrangement of beautiful tiles.
