About Chanderi

Maharaja Devi Singh Bundela Chhatri,ChanderiBuilt in 1663, this chhatri is similar to that of Maharaja Bharat Shah but is smaller in dimensions. With eaves at two levels, the building appears, on the outside, to have three storeys but inside it is just one structure. Interestingly, three wall faces out of the eight are decorated with mosque-like arches and even carved with verses from the Holy Quran. These were possibly meant for his Muslim subjects for them to offer prayers for his soul on his death anniversaries.
