Brings you closer to all the cultural heritage and history of Madhya Pradesh especially Gwalior. Evening time is preferable.

A beautiful fort but isn't very well maintained.

It's a nice big fort involves lot of walking. There is a museum also managed by ASI. The guides are good esp little boys, one boy named Kalu is self taught and know many languages. The sound and light show narrated by Amitabh Bachchan is just about OK. But the night view of the city from top is good.

Gwalior Fort is the best and the most beautiful fort of India of all times.. The beauty lies in the colors, carvings, so many buddha statues... It has 3 basements which is unique called the bhul bhulaiya.. The sound and light show is a must..

Fort has a class and magnificence. Man mandir mahal, sas bahu mandir were beautiful. Jail work showed the handiwork as being of high order. Sound and light show was not good as compared to Delhi or Port Blair even.
