The Buddhi Chanderi is an important historical monument in the small town of Chanderi in Ashoknagar district of Madhya Pradesh. If you are planning a trip to this lovely town do not miss out on the Buddhi Chanderi. It will surely impress you.
Mahmud Khilji of Malwa is credited with the construction of the Buddhi Chanderi. In the year 1445 he passed through this town. It was at that point of time that he ordered that the Mahal be built. His original intention was to create a far more grand structure. He wanted the Buddhi Chanderi to be a seven storied palace. Unfortunately only two storeys were completed during his lifetime.
The architecture of the Buddhi Chanderi bears a lot of resemblance to the architecture of Mandu. The palace is equally divided into four equal parts. It reflects good architectural skills. The palace bears a very imposing look. Parts of it are now ruined but this should not deter you from visiting the palace because it still retains some of its former grandeur.
