At a distance of 1.5 km from Mandu Road, Taveli Mahal is an old palace located in Mandu, Madhya Pradesh. Situated to the south of the Jahaz Mahal, it is one of the must-visit Mandu tourist places.

Facing Kapur Lake, Taveli Mahal was used as a stable and a guardhouse during the Mughal rule. The name Taveli is a corrupted form of 'Tavela' which literally means 'Stable'. The ground floor of the building was used for the stables while the apartments in the two upper storeys were used to house the guards.

Now, it houses a museum of Archaeological Survey of India and houses various artifacts found at Mandu, including 11th- and 12th-century sculptures and 15th-century stone slabs with Persian inscriptions in Naskh script. The terrace affords a splendid view of the surrounding area and the ruins.
