Madhya Pradesh Palaces

Madhya Pradesh Tourism


Here we have shared the collected information of some of the popular palaces in Madhya Pradesh state. If we look at the map of Madhya Pradesh, showing the locations of various palaces in state then we will realize that majority of palaces are located on north to east of state and very few palaces are located on east to south region of state. Their is perfect reason behind this concentration of palaces and other historical buildings. As we know that northern region is called Bundelkhand region and eastern region is called Malwa region. These regions are more rocky and arid due to which building construction was easy in this region. Main raw materials are easily available in the form of red sandstone, yellow sandstone. At the same time, due to presence of Rajasthan in neighbor, skilled manpower was also easily available which resulted into construction of many architectural and sculptural marvels. One more valid reason was that India was easy target for Arab invaders due to which fortification was necessity for local kingdoms. When forts were constructed then it was obvious to create palaces withing the fort complex. Among palaces of Madhya Pradesh, we will find most of them are in plain, not within fortified townships. At the same time, some of the palaces are within fortified region, thus are more secure. All this decided by rulers as per local conditions and political stability in there region.
