Located on the main road to Dhar near the Alamgir Darwaza, it is in depilated condition. However it affords great views of the valley and nearby fortifications. What remains today of a palace complex is army observation tower and small domed tomb.

Comes after Echo point. It is a fine domed structure called Jali Mahal. Jali -Mahal is really a tomb with carved screen. Condition of the place is not well maintained.
