About Rai Parveen Mahal
Rai Parveen Mahal was built in 1618 by Maharaja Indrajit Singh for her favorite courtesan, Rai Parveen. The intricate work of the Mahal makes it look like more Mughal than Bundela. Main hall, terraces and the chambers filled with air and light are the appealing sites of the Mahal. History says that Rai Parveen was a singer, beautiful dancer and of course a pure poetess, some of belongings of Rai Parveen are still preserved in the Mahal.
This place is also called Anand Mandal Bagh and the Rai Praveen Manika Bhavan. There is an octagonal shaped Mughal garden outside the palace which makes the palace more beautiful.
