Resurrection of an Ancient Relic

Mubarak Mandi complex lies on the old Jammu side of the Tawi River overlooking the water Body. As we neared the complex we found a lot of persons working on the various buildings comprising the complex. We also found the Dogra Art Museum closed as it was a Monday. Plans to venture into the other parts of the complex had already been discouraged by the various reviews on this site which made constant mention of the multiple fire accidents and an Earthquake that had afflicted the buildings that comprised the erstwhile Residence of the Royal Family. The few remaining safe structures had been converted to Goverment Offices. Even as we were making our way to the vehicle a chance encounter with a Gentleman working with the Tourism Department changed a damp squid visit into an enthralling adventure. The Gentleman who introduced himself as a Team member of the Mubarak Mandi Development Project volunteered to show us around the site. We first were taken to the Gol Ghar. The place with a fusion of mughal and European architecture resembled a Gothic ruin. It is being prepared for a Sound and Light Show by a private Agency. The Sheesh Mahal is being Restored by the ASI. The restoration effort has become a veritable treasure Hunt for the plethora of hidden treasures are gradually being unearthed. A part of the structure is being converted into a heritage Hitel by ITC. Cable Car Service which is presently connecting Bahu complex, Peerkho and Mahamaya will ve extended to Mubarak Mandi. The restoration process has been delayed due to the pandemic. However, when completed thus will ve a jewel in the crown of Tourism in Jammu.

A true Indian structure that over the years assimilated various styles of architecture.. you can see all sorts of influences here. This is where the Dogra rules ruled from. Very beautiful structure and intricate work throughout the fort. Again, like most monuments in the country, this needs better upkeep and restoration.

About 1800 years old fort but looks good. Many things are inside to visit. We like the Gol ghar and museum and also Dogra art Gallery.

The architecture of the palace is an elaborate blend of Rajasthani, Mughal and European influences.
One of its most spectacular segment, The Shesh Mahal or The Pink Hall houses the Dogra Art Museum which has several miniature paintings and Emperor Shah Jahan's golden bow and arrow, among other interesting things. The oldest building in this Palace complex date to 1824, having seen its own share of time and gathering specimens from all these ages, becoming one itself.

Mubarak Mandi Palace was the seat of the erstwhile Dogra Empire. All major Dogra rulers like Ranjit Singh, Gulab Singh etc. ruled out of this very place. Mubarak Mandi Palace gives a glimpse of the glorious days of the Dogra rule.

Note: Mubarak Mandi Palace is closed down since April first week, because of a major fire that broke out inside the palace.

We have been there last year with my family.Drogra art gallery inside is good to visit. But management who is head of this place is only to earn money from tickets.Govt is also not stress on this side because its about to ruin.One part of it works is in progress but going too slow you can't imagine it.
Every where you will get display board don't cross this its dangerous.I have seen these many years ago but its same today also.
