Bhavani Mandap

, Kolhapur

No photo available!
The oldest and also biggest structure in Kolhapur is Bhavani Mandap, which was known as Glory of the city. This building was constructed during the period 1785-1800 AD of the Kolhapur ruler Shivaji Maharaj II. Originally the Mandap had 14 squares and the invasion of Muslim King Sadatkhan in 1813 ruined 7 squares.

In the middle of the Bhavani Mandap, a temple dedicated to Goddess Bhavani is placed. The mandap is a wonderful structure with many adornments like cluster of lights (Zumbur) brought from Italy and the major entrance hall is splendid and tall. A lively statue of Shahu Maharaj is placed near the hall and varieties of stuffed creatures are preserved in the hall adding the beauty of the Mandap.
