On the lofty crest of the hill to the south beyond the palace of Baz Bahadur stands Roopmati’s Pavilion, a magnificent expression of Afghan architecture. It was originally built as an army observation post.

From its hill perch, this magnificent structure with its two pavilions was a retreat of the lovely queen, Roopmati, from where she could see Baz Bahadur’s Palace and the sacred river Narmada. Sitting at the pavilion, one can enjoy the sunset over the Narmada River.

A large sandstone structure originally built as an army observation post it is known today as Roopmati’s Pavilion. Rani Roopmati – the love interest of Baaz Bahadur lived here and is said to have gazed at the Baz Bahadur’s Palace – situated below and also at Narmada river, flowing through the Nimar plains far below, a river which the queen revered. The Pavilion is a major tourist attraction and offers many scenic views.
