Hindola Mahal

Islamic Palace in Mandu

Just north of Ghiyas’ stately pleasure dome is the Hindola Mahal, so-called because the slope of its walls sort of resembles that of the ropes of a swing. Thought to have been a royal reception hall, it's often ascribed to Hoshang Shah, though some writers attribute it to Ghiyas-ud-Din. Either way it's an impressive and eye-catching design.
