Near the village of Nanaun, along the river Urr (Urvashi), can be found the earliest imprints of human existence in the region. Sandstone rock formations, which would have served as shelters from sun and rain for the pre-historic man also became the canvas for his art. These rock paintings can be found all the way from Chota Bharka to Bharka waterfall.
This mosque, situated a short distance from the main town, was built in AD 1495 by the Governor Sher Khan during the reign of Ghiassuddin Khilji. It consists of a two-stroreyed arched facade with minarets on either side. In front of this is a 80 feet by 100 feet stone platform where Muslims of the area gather to this day to offer prayers on the occasion of Id-ul-Fitr and Id-ul-Zuha.
About 2 kilometres south of town, on the Ramnagar road is the Khandargiri temple complex which is a popular pilgrimage site for the Jains. The most impressive part of the centre is the towering statue of the first Jain Tirthankara Rishabhnath, also known as Adinath. Carved on the surface of the hillock, the statue is a striking 45 feet in height and has a powerful presence.
This structure, the most eminent among all monuments in Chanderi, is situated at the southern end of the inner city. Located within one of the seven interlocking walls which enclosed specific areas of the town, the darwaza was built in the 15th century, during the reign of Sultan Mahmood Shah Khilji I. It is said that this gateway stood at the entrance of a palace, Badal Mahal, but this palace no longer survives.
