TRAVEL THE WORLD - MANDU, MADHYA PRADESH, INDIA
This small mausoleum is the first marble building made in India. It is located in Mandu, a small town in Madhya Pradesh. Other buildings located here include a fort, at least two palaces and a large mosque, mostly dating from the 15th Century and protected by the government. Very well-informed guides have been provided to take you around the large site. This marble mausoleum was admired by Shah Jehan who was inspired by it when he made his plans for the Taj Mahal.
