The Gwalior Fort is at about 300 ft above a hill top. One should take a guide ( Rs 200/) to know the details of King Man Singh's activities and history of that dynasty . In Gwalior trip , Gwalior Fort and Jai Vilas palace must be seen.

Well I visited this fort sometime in last September, it a beautiful blue monument of the scindia dynasty. The fort has beautiful carvings and is a good place for photography. It is rumoured that the fort is built on 5 storey building underground, which house nothing but gold.
