Kush Mahal

Khush Mahal

Khush Mahal silent tribute to the chivalrous and culturally rich past built by Shitabh Khan.  This structure, said to be built over the site of a Kakatiya palace, may have been used as an audience hall by Shitab Khan, the 16th century Qutb Shahi governor of Warangal. However it was probably built during the 14th century Tughlak occupation of the fort, the only building from that period. An indication to a glorious past is the Khush Mahal, a masterpiece built by Shitabh Khan.

Its sharply sloping walls are a typical feature of Tughlak architecture. The longer east and west walls of the building have a projecting parapet and six high arches framed by narrow rectangles. These admit light to the interior. This elegant edifice near the fort was built by Shitabh Khan. It is a mute testimony to the glorious past of Warangal. The idols excavated from surrounding area are displayed here.

A wide entrance arch on the north wall leads to a single spacious schamber inside with small storage rooms on each side. A mute testimony to a glorious past is the Khush Mahal, a masterpiece built by Shitabh Khan. Located close to the Warangal Fort, this magnificent edifice houses idols excavated in the surrounding areas.
