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.

If you drive up via the Western (Urvai) Gate, then you're missing the most spectacular views of the fort. Instead, get an auto, or have your driver take you to the Gwalior Gate. From there, it's a short (slightly steep) 15 minute walk up to the entrance to the Man Singh palace at the top. The views walking up this... More

Amazing history and the labyrinth below was quite impressive. It is a large complex. allow at least a half day to see it and get a guide to give you a good appreciation of the history

Gwalior fort is at the heart of gwalior city. This is a must visit place if you travel to gwalior. The fort consists of a defensive structure and two main palaces, Gurjari Mahal and Man Mandir, built by Man Singh Tomar. The fort has been controlled by a number of different rulers over time.

The Man Mandir palace was built during the reign of Man Singh (1486-1516) and it is an excellent example of beautiful architecture. One important aspect of this palace is that it utilizes glazed tiles in different colours blue and brown to depict interesting designs along the interior as well as outside walls. Some of the figures depicted are ducks, elephants,... More

The front side of the Fort is massive and attractive. We have to walk in an upward terrain of around 600 m to reach the Fort. But inside of the Fort and palace are not properly maintained. Proper display of historic events can be maintained. Sound & Light show in evening is good

Amazing place, beautiful, serene and romantic. The architecture is amazing, one must visit this place atleast once. Its a good idea to take a guide, it makes the trip much more interesting, but remember to bargain well with the guides (huge scope of bargaining)

One has to hire the local taxi which charge too much. The cheap Auto rikshaw are not allowed here. The site is under the 'world heritage' category, hence these restrictions are useless. They should allow the cheap modes of transportation for common man. The sight & sound show was just OK. other attractions near the fort are in very poor... More
