Kabootar Khana, Champaner

This place inside the Citadel of Champaner, in Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park is one of the pleasure places of the Royal people between 15th and 16th century.



In the Kabootar Khana or Pigeon House located next to Large Pond, Sultan had a personal collection of pigeons and he would relax watching the pigeons fly around.



This was the summer pavilion of the royal family and they would relax in the cool breeze that  blows through the pillars in the summer.
