At a distance of 5 km from Mandu Road, Rewa Kund is an artificial lake located in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. Situated opposite Baz Bahadur Palace, it is one of the best places to visit in Mandu.

Rewa Kund is another monument dedicated to Baz Bahadur and Roopmati's legendary love story. A part of Rewa Kund Group of Monuments, this lake was built by Baz Bahadur in order to ensure water supply to Roopmati's pavilion. Legend has it that Roopmati worshipped the Narmada River and used to view it from the top of her Pavilion. Baz Bahadur constructed the Rewa Kund, the water of which came from River Narmada. Thus Roopmati often came to worship at this Kund.

This man-made lake measures about 230 feet in the north-south direction and 170 feet in the east-west direction. The north-western side of the lake has a pavilion that has been expanded over time, displaying varying styles of pillars and arches, providing a resting area for pilgrims and pleasure seekers alike. The northern end of the lake has a unique contraption called a water lift that provides water supply to Baz Bahadur's palace. Bathing is not allowed in the Kund nowadays but the water is clean.
