About Historical Tour of Madan Mahal Fort

If you are a history buff, visit Jabalpur for an enriching experience. Standing testimony to the valor and pride of the Gond rulers, secret forts built for the protection of the empire, adorn the city. Madan Mahal Fort is located on top of a hill and dates back to the 11th century AD. This fort is associated with the Gond queen Rani Durgavati and her son Madan Singh. The fort is not too grand but is of high importance among the ancient structures of India. Fully equipped for fierce encounters, the fort houses a stable, war rooms, a small reservoir and the pleasure chambers of the rulers. The Balancing Rock beside which the monument is built and the hill on which it is built makes for a geological wonder. If you are in Jabalpur, learn the historical importance of the Gonds with a visit to Madan Mahal Fort.

Historical Context: This fort dates back to 11th century AD, and is named after Rani Durgawati's son Madan Singh. It is believed that this decrepit fort shelters a lot of hidden treasures including gold bricks within its underground folds.
Pro Tip: Wear proper trekking shoes as you need to climb the hill.
