The light and sound show in the evening Is really good to watch & enjoy. The palace is situated at the hill top & you can watch the total Gwalior from this place

We visited the Fort with one of my groups. The vieuw from the mountaintop to the city is very nice, especialy for people from a flat country like Holland. The outside of the fort is very nice with the inlay of all these coloured tiles in the walls. We bought tickets to visit the inside but I found this very... More

This complex is very spread out because there are many monuments. The east side is the easiest to walk up but the west side has the beautiful Jain sculptures carved into the walk up. One can take a tour but walking it is best. One can spend as much time in any of the monuments as one wants.

Though the fort was constructed by Mansingh Tomar with great passion along with Gujari Mahal for her wife. It has lost its elegance in the mean time. Do get a guide before u get inside to know stories.

The Gwalior Fort sits on the top of a hill watching over the city as the maharajah Raja Man Singh most likely did in 1516. The fort encloses palaces and temples in its two mile radius. The Man Mandir Palace is a stunning beautifully carved example of Rajput architecture and worth the trip alone. Also in the fort is the... More

A good Fort... the way you would expect a fort in the hills. Offers a good view of the area around. A must see. Moreover, the other sites, Saas Bahu Temple, Gurudwara and one more temple are at a walking distance.

Any visit to Gwalior without seeing the Fort would almost be criminal, as would any attempt to look round without the expert insight provided by a local guide. As with most N Indian forts, there is a mass of history associated with the buildings and any visit requires time to let the stories sink in and the full ambience of... More

To be very honest , I feel that this is one of the most underrated forts of India. The exteriors with those dashes of blue make it look spectacular. I explored the fort a lot with a local guide who made me see some significant spots in a short time. Loved everything about this place. Tip : You can hire... More
