History of Mandideep

In 1983, Mandideep housed 49 industrial units. Looking back through history, Mandideep situated in close proximity to Bhojpur's Shiva temple was surrounded by a big lake since the 10th century. In the 15th century, Sultan Hussein Shah of Malwa attacked the Bhojpur temple and demolished the Bhojpur dam, which kept releasing water for 30 years. Mandideep village came into existence when the land dried up. In the last three decades, Mandideep has touched new heights of industrial success.
