Gwalior Tours Travel

Gwalior is named after a saint who cured the local chieftain Suraj Sen from leprosy. History of Gwalior dates back to 8th century. From then onwards Gwalior was to become the cradle of dynasties. The massive fort which overlooks the city Gwalioris a testimony to its glory and grandeur. Warrior kings, poets, musicians and saints contributed in making Gwalior the city it is.

Sightseeing / Attractions In Gwalior

    Built in the 15th century by Raja Mansingh Tomar on a hilltop, the mighty Gwalior Fort overlooks the city. The outer wall of the fort stands two miles in length and 35 m in height.

    Built in the memory of Guru Hargobind Saheb, the 6th Sikh Guru who was imprisoned here by Emperor Jehangir for over two years.

  • Gujari Mahal
    If Man Mandir reflects Man Singh's aesthetic sensibilities, Gujari Mahal speaks of his love. The courage and beauty of Mrignayani and her love with Raja Mansingh are now a part of popular folk tradition. The palace has been now converted in a museum and houses very good collection of Jain and Hindu artifacts.

  • Suraj Kund
    Though major portions of the fort were built in the 15th century, references to this gigantic complex can be traced back to 425 A.D. Older than the city is the Suraj Kund within the fort walls, the original pond where Suraj Sen, or Suraj Pal as he was later known, was cured by saint Gwalipa.
