The grandeur of the fort and its many palaces and temples attracts many tourists all year round. Our Gwalior tour packages tailored to suit your specific requirement and budget take you on a wonderful day tour around Gwalior visiting all its historic museums, forts and temples.

The fort itself is architecturally a beautiful and unique structure described by Babur as a “Pearl among Fortresses”. The impregnable fort houses ornate palaces including the most famous Man Mandir, Gurjari Mahal, Karan Mahal, Jahangir Mahal, and Shah Jahan Mahal. Also much admired are the intricately carved temples of Teli Ka Mandir and the Sas-Bahu Mandir. The fort has been the Maratha stronghold for centuries even though it went out of their hands for a while, after independence, it was handed back to the Scindia royals who still maintain their residence within the palace premises, the remaining areas being open for tourists and museums with awe-inspiring exhibits. 

As the story goes, Suraj Sen was cured of leprosy by a Saint and hermit by name Gwalipa, after which he built the initial part of the fort in the 8th Century and named the city Gwalior after the Saint. He was cured after drinking the waters of the now sacred pond Suraj Kund, which is still a sacred pilgrim spot. Later the fort and its invulnerable ramparts, more than 3.5 km in length and 35 m in height, were built by Raja Mansingh Tomar in the 15th Century. The sloping cobbled pathway to the fort with its many gates has numerous Jaina monuments cut into the rock faces. There are 5 groups of monuments, of them The Gopachal rock is the most admired. 

The Gurjari Mahal in the precincts of the fort was built for Queen Mrignayani by Raja Mansingh. She was his 9th wife, a mere milkmaid named “Naani”. The Raja married her for progeny as the preceding 8 queens did not give him any children. By her request, the palace was built with a continuous supply of water from the River Ria. The Palace is now a museum with Hindu and Jain artifacts.

The Teli Ka Mandir is a Dravidian style Hindu temple with intricate carvings. This 9th Century temple is perhaps the oldest monument in the fort premises. Further away, is the Saas-Bahu temple, so-called because of the dissimilar size of the twin temples. The interior walls are ornately carved with a large lotus carved into the ceiling of the inner chamber. 

A beautiful Sikh temple dedicated to the 6th Tirthankara, Sri Guru Har Gobind Sahib called Data Bendi Chhod Quila within a huge complex in an area of around 6 acres, forms a part of the Fort. The marble Gurudwara was built in 1970 with the Scindia School within the complex. It is said that the Guru was once imprisoned in the fort and later released by Jahangir. He managed to release 52 Kings who were also imprisoned with him. At the time Jahangir is said to have announced that whoever held the Guru’s robe would be released. Thus came about the name “Data Bhendi Chhod Quila”.

Gwalior city boasts of the Jai Vilas Palace built by Sir Michael Filose in a mixed European style, with more than 400 rooms and an enormous, ostentatious and ornately decorated durbar hall with a roof over 100 ft. in height. It is the part hotel and the part museum housing the shield of Rani Laxmi Bhai among other famous artifacts.

Tansen’s tomb is another famous attraction of Gwalior. Tansen was a famous musician and one of the nine gems that once graced Akbar’s court. Also known as Sarod Ghar, there is a museum dedicated to Tansen of Indian musical instruments. The tomb of Gaus Mohammed, Suraj Kund, and Surya Mandir or Sun temple similar to Sun Temple of Konark are some of Gwalior’s attractions.
