One of the most amazing forts I have seen. The fort is a collection of multiple buildings constructed in different architecture styles by different rulers in the last 1500 years, all enclosed inside an wall on the top of the mountain. There are different accesses for cars and pedestrians. The walls start from the ground itself when you enter. The... More

From the city till one reach the fort the drive is awesome and bit adventurous as the final part of drive is a 40 degree climb. The view from the various part of the fort is awesome in day as well as night. The underground floors of mansingh palace is a must watch. At some places it is not maintained... More

Gwalior fort is one of the best forts you can ever find in India. I recommend to visit the fort in the evening so that you can watch its famous 'light and sound' event.

But we cannot visit all the Fort because it is used as school. It's a pity. Even if the Fort is well preserved, I preferred to visit the old palace in Orccha. And Orccha is not so far than Gwalior. But you can also visit the temples of the "Belle-mere" and the "belle-fille"

A typical Indian ruinous fort looked after by Archeological Survey of India. The place is devoid of even basic facilities. The guides are unenergetic and uninteresting. A few amazing things to see.. like 700 year old vegetable colours still intact on some of the walls.

Must visit for anyone visiting Gwalior. You need to cross the old city area and drive on stiff incline to reach here. Arrive around 4.00 pm and visit the man mandir fort and then the sas bahu mandir which are covered in same entry ticket. You will experience the best of Indian architecture. Later during evening 6 pm in winter... More

The Gwalior Fort is a remarkable place for history lovers as it a unique heritage site with various monuments within. Surroundings are beautiful and Sunset visibility from the hill top view is excellent, like Sun is slowly dropping behind Gwalior city front view. A tour inside the Man Mandhir Palace was particularly good, all-over a very good historic place for... More
