behind the name
The rock of love
Founded in 1400 AD on the bank of the Tapti River, the historical city of Burhanpur was once the capital of the Mughal Kingdom. An important outpost of the Mughals, Burhanpur was known as the gateway to southern India for its strategic location.
Ruled by Shah Jahan for a very long period, it is one of the most beautiful symbols of Mughal architecture and Mughal grandeur.
The magnificent mosques, tombs and palaces give you a sense of what Mughal life at its peak was like. Burhanpur’s glorious and rich past will leave you fascinated and engrossed, just like a child.
As the name suggests, Hotel Tapti Retreat (MPSTDC) is the perfect place to relax after a long day of sight-seeing. Most of Burhanpur’s famous monuments are in close proximity. The hotel offers comfortable accommodation with contemporary and essential amenities.
