Pankot Palace was the capital building of the province of Pankot, India. In addition to being the seat of government, it was the home for the Maharajah Zalim Singh. The palace was built on the top of a mount known as the "wounded" or "bleeding" mountain, so named for its subterranean volcanic activity that left boiling pools and sulfurous fumes in its cave systems. The mount was located above a tropical valley, and not far from a murky but crocodile-infested tributary of the Ganges River.
Below the palace was a temple that the Thuggee cult used during sacrifices and where they kept their slaves.
