village in Madhya Pradesh, India

Mardana is in Madhya Pradesh.


Mardana is a village on the banks of river Narmada in the central province of India. Locals say that the village gets it name from Bhai Mardana, one of the first followers of Guru Nanak Dev. Ruins near the village school indicate that a small fort was constructed in the village. The fort is said to be the capital of Raja Mordhvaj who died at Prayagraj. The ruins show the sinhasana (seat) of Maraja Mayuradhvaja in a cave. The fort has a hidden ghat (gupt ghat) and a guhavasi Shiva. The village was also among the sites selected by Malwa queen Rani Ahilyabai to build her capital because of its history and mentions in the vedic puranas. However, her priest advised against it. She later constructed a fortified ghat and temple of Mayuresvara Shiva in the village.
