Gwalior Fort

Gwalior Fort is very old, strong and beautiful. It is located on the Gopachal mountains. As per few historians, the fort was first constructed about three thousand years ago. Others assert that it was built in the second century after Christ. This fort is located at a height of about 300 feet. It houses some beautiful ancient temples like Gujari Mahal, Shahjehan Mahal, Teli’s Temple and Sass-Bahu ka Mandir. At present the renowned Scindia School and Data-Bandi-Chhod-Gurudwara are also located in the fort. Several Jain idols are also worth seeing on the walls of this fort. On the lower side of the fort is also situated the Gujari Mahal Museum. This Mahal was made by Raja Maan Singh for his beloved wife queen Gujari. In this museum, still today, the world renowned stone statue of Shaal Bhanjika is conserved.

The impressive fort has five gates leading to its interior. Among several monuments here are the Gujari Mahal, built by Mansingh for his favourite queen hailing from the Gujar stock, now housing a museum and archaeological research centre; Man Mandir Palace, Mansingh’s summer retreat; and the Elephant Gate leading to it; a temple for Vishnu built in the 11th century, called the Saas Bahu Temple; and Suraj Kund and Karan Palace.
