As the name suggests, Hindola Mahal means a swinging palace. The name was given to its peculiarly sloping side walls. It is distinct from other palaces in Mandu because of its simplicity in the style of construction.
The building is T shaped, has a main hall, a transverse projection at the north. There are six beautiful arched openings on both sides of the hall with beautiful windows above them for letting in air and light. The building looks neatly chiseled and simple in design.
