Islam Nagar was a Rajput town, called Jagdishpur until taken by an Afgan (Dost Mohammad Khan) in 1715. He founded the Bhopal State with Islamnagar as its capital. The fortifications built within them included a palace, gardens and a charming village. The palace has an arched gateway leading to the Chaman Mahal, Rani Mahal and Gond Mahal. The Rani Mahal (Queen's Palace) has a rectangular garden and deep arcades. The Chaman Mahal has a textbook example of charbagh with pools and fountains.
