about madan mahal fort

Madan Mahal Fort, built by the Gond rular Raja Madan Shah in 1116, is perched atop a rocky hill. A popular ancient fort of Jabalpur city, it is located in its South Western part. The location of the fort lead to it being used as a watch tower for the attackers and defenders during the Gondwana rule. The fort dominates the skyline and provides a wonderful panoramic views of the town and the countryside around it. 

The fort was a pleasure palace for the tenth Gond King, Madan Singh, one of the sons of Rani Durgawati. The fort is maintained and protected by Archaeological Survey of India. As you climb the Madan Mahal Fort, you will come across a number of shrines including medieval structures like Sangram Sagar and Bajnamath, built by the famous Gond King, Sangram Shah, between 1480-1540. Within the fort there is a pond as well, serene but rather neglected. Beware of the black-faced langur monkeys, who can be quite aggressive.
