This was essentially build as Madrassa, a place for Islamic teaching. Even today the rooms and cells tell a story of teaching and studying. The name means palace of gold and was build by Mahmud Shah Khilji. The Ashrafi Mahal faces the Jami Masjid. In the same complex are few others structures. There is a tower which was seven storied high when built. This tower was built to celebrate the victory of Mahmud Shah Khilji over Rana Khumba of Mewar. Sadly out of the seven stories only one survives today. In the same premises are ruins of tomb which was intended to be largest structure of Mandu. But the structure collapsed due to faulty construction and bad planning. When compared with other structures Ashrafi Mahal is in very good shape of preservation.
