MANDLA TOURS

THIS SLEEPY TOWN is situated on a loop in the Narmada river, which provides a natural moat for the 17thcentury Gond Fort, now in ruins. Mandla is a sacred city for Gond trihals , whose warrior queen, Durgavati, committed suicide here in 1564 when she was defeated by the Mughal emperor Akbar’s army. Temples and ghats line the banks of the river, where the Gonds perform their funeral rites. The main bazaar, near the bus stand, is interesting to explore with its shops selling tribal silver jewellery and bell metal.
