It is a three storied building facing the Betwa River in the east. The entrance wall of the Jahangir Mahal is more elaborately designed than the rest of them. It is made up of turquoise tiles which make it look more eloquent than others. There are a number of courtrooms and balconies with other huge dorms and rooms which was used for the entertainment of the visitors and their acquaintances. There are also two elephants on the gate along with the bell. It is said that the bell was rung whenever the King was approaching and it was a form of showing respect. The whole Jahangir Mahal is said to be one of the finest piece of work in the whole of the Bundela dynasty.
The sunset should be witnessed as the turquoise tiles glow gorgeously in the setting sun and leaving sparkles everywhere. The best time to visit Jahangir Mahal is October – March as the temperature is quite moderate in these months. The summer season is quite hot and hence should be avoided, the monsoon season is also not quite favourable for visiting.
