Madan Mahal - Watch Tower of the Past @ Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, INDIA

Madan Mahal Fort was built around 11 A.D and was the pleasure palace for Madan Singh, the tenth Gond King and son of Rani Durgawati. During her reign, the fort was used as a watchtower.
On way to Madan Mahal, one comes across the Balancing rock that rests on another rock with a very narrow nexus. This rock has survived severe earthquakes when everything around it fell.

Reminiscence!!!.. we used to wander a lot in this forts in my childhood days. Valiant Rani Durgawati, mysterious hidden tunnels and lot many fairy tales.
During those times we used to thought why the hell Rani would live in this desolated fort.

Thanks Vibha
