Isn't it love that binds us all?! We can't be talking about anything else except romance while talking about the mystifying Rani Roopmati Pavilion.

A symbol of undying love!

The pavilion was initially constructed in the 16th century, to be used as an army ground to keep a watch around and guard the kingdom. It performed a more romantic role when King Baz Bahadur, the Sultan of Malwa, dedicated it to his consort, Rani Roopmati.

Legends suggest that Rani Roopmati, who was known as a poet and a singer, used to sing while gazing at her beloved's palace and the pavilion served her well because it was designed acoustically. Their love story took a tragic twist when Rani Roopmati ingested poison to protect herself from being disgraced by the Mughal troops and Adham Khan, in the absence of King Baz Bahadur.
