HIndola MahalThe church like Hindola mahal or the Swinging palace derives its name from the sloping sidewalks. Due to the slopes the walls of this palace seems to be swinging. Hindola mahal essentially was a meeting place during Ghiyas-ud-din-Khilji's time. The arcjitecture of this building is unique and very innovative. Probably the clopes were built to take the rulers upstairs on elephant. The decorated facades and delicate trellis on the moulded cloumns add to the beauty of this sandstone structure. On the western side of this structre there are many building and structers which narrate a saga of past grandeur and glory. One interesting structure is the Champ Baoli or pond which has a underground arrangement of vaulted rooms for hot and cold water. Close to Hindola palace are Dilawar Khan's Mosque, Nahar Jharokha, Taveli Mahal, two wells called Ujali and Andheri Baoli (pond), Gada Shah shop and house. All these places are worth giving a look.
