  About Gwalior

The pristine Bateshwar valley is known for the ruins of beautiful temples within verdant woods. The panoramic lush surroundings add a charm to the ruined temples drawing both nature lovers and pilgrims to this site.

Ghous Mohammed
For its exquisite stonework and excellent architecture, the Ghaus Mohammed mausoleum is an absolute must see. The sandstone mausoleum of the 16th century Afghan prince turned Sufi saint is built in typical Mughal style, with hexagonal pillars and delicate screens using pierced stone technique. Strictly from a historical perspective, Ghaus Mohammed's major contribution was that he helped Babar to win the Gwalior fort.Particularly exquisite are the delicate lacy screens, using the pierced stone technique. The skilled artisans of Gwalior were famed and their artistic brilliance is apparent in the huge panels of lacy screen work, combined with the interesting architectural style that gives it an absolutely ethereal feel. It is amazing to see that the tomb is a famous pilgrimage center of both Muslims and Hindus.

Gujari Mahal
The historically significant Gujari Mahal is part of the magnificent Gwalior fort complex and is worth a visit. This beautiful 15th century palace is a lasting monument to the love of Tomar King Raja Mansingh, the founder of the Gwalior fort for his Gujar queen, Mrignayani. Legend has it that Raja Man Singh while on a Hunt, chanced upon Mrignayani, a Gujar tribal separating two buffaloes locked in combat. The captivated king won her consent to becoming his ninth queen after fulfilling her two demands ? that he build her a separate palace, and have a canal dug to bring the water of her village Rai, for her everyday use.

Gwalior Fort
Looming majestically at a height of nearly 100 meters overlooking the city of Gwalior is its most famous landmark - the magnificent Gwalior Fort, popularly known as the Gibraltar of India. Two roads approach the fort. The preferred approach for walkers is the steep winding road flanked by statues of Jain tirthankaras carved into the rock face that takes you up to the Urwahi Gat. A Northeast entrance starts from the archaeological museum and leads to the doors of the Man Singh Palace. The solid fort walls of sandstone enclose several marvels of medieval architecture including three temples, six palaces, impressive gates and a number of historic water tanks.

Teli Ka Mandir
The Teli-ka-Mandir or the oilman's temple is probably the earliest of the temples in the Gwalior Fort. What makes this 9thcentury temple unusual is its unique blend of architectural styles that seems to incorporate the Indo Aryan and Nagara styles. The edifice has a peculiar layout plan and design. Unlike most temples of the region, this Mandir does not have a mandapa or pillared hall but consists only of the sanctuary with a porch and doorway leading into the inner chamber. Though the roof of the temple looks Dravidian, the sculptures inside are typically Indo Aryan!

Jai Vilas Mahal
One of the famous tourist destinations of Gwalior is the sparkling white Jai Vilas Palace. Built by the Maharaja Jiyaji Rao Scindia, the Italian palazzo styled edifice combines the Tuscan and Corinthian architectural styles. As you look upon the palace, you are instantly reminded of a quaint Mediterranean resort. The present Maharaja still resides at the palace. However a part of the palace houses the Scindia Museum, which displays royal memorabilia and a remarkable collection of artifacts from across the world.

The fortress of Padavali is also known for the magnificent temple within the complex. The splendid architecture of the temple is worth seeing and the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu can be seen here especially Ram Leela, Mahabharat, Krishna Leela, Samudra Manthan and the marriage ceremony of Lord Ganesha. The unique figurine to be viewed here is the idol of Lord Shiva who can be seen dancing as a Preta at a cemetery.

Sun Temple
Close to Morar, the Sun temple dedicate to the Sun God is closely related to the Konark sun temple. This elegant temple is bounded by lush green landscaped gardens and quiet ambience. Though relatively modern, the architecture and style is similar to the ancient Konark temple and has already become one of the most revered temples in Gwalior.

Suraj Kund
The place where revered Guru Gwalipa healed the Rajput chieftain, Suraj Sen has been commemorated as Suraj Kund. The 15th century kund has many legends and stories woven around it. It is said that the chronically ill Suraj sen was cured when he tasted the holy waters of this Kund and as a token of his thankfulness he built a tank around the pond and a fort. The city of Gwalior was also named after the guru and sage Gwalipa.
