Shaukat Mahal

Shaukat Mahal
The Shaukat Mahal and Sadar Manzil are two architectural curiosities of Bhopal.
Situated right at the entrance of the Chowk area, the Mahal is a blend of both oriental and occidental styles of architecture. The Mahal is supposed to have been designed by a decadent Frenchman who claimed to be a descendant of the Bourbon Dynasty of France.
The building is very different from the rest of the Islamic architecture in the vicinity.In the Shaukat Mahal, Gothic and post-Renaissance styles have been freely combined to produce a quaint but charming effect. The Shaukat Mahal is a beautiful alabaster-white building that has a series of intricate triangular-shaped arches on its roof – the unique feature of the palace.
The exterior of the palace is also carved with exquisite floral patterns that give the Mahal a very eco-friendly appearance.

The Shaukat Mahal is flanked by the Sadar Manzil which served as a Hall of Public Audience during the princely period.
This brick-red building has an ostentatious appearance, and the gardens that surround the palace makes the Manzil look as pretty as a postcard.
