There are many statues enroute for profile clicks and selfies. Bhul bhulaiya and museum are worth a visit.

This is undoubtedly the center of attraction of Gwalior city. The location of the Fort is strategic - perched up on the highest hillock of the city. Indeed , it is at such a height that any enemy coming from below is at a disadvantage.There are 2 ways to enter the Fort. 1) If you choose to climb up the... More

One of the most beautiful place in Madhya Pradesh to visit if you admire the history and the architecture of Medieval India. The Best season to visit is from November to April. One should carry their warm cloths because it's pretty cold in gwalior from November to February but afternoons are pleasant. It's tourist friendly place so you can get... More

The fort is unremarkable, but Man Singh Palace within it has some interesting features. A guide seemed very expensive (750 Rs). The massive Jain statues carved into the rock on the southern approach to the fort are interesting, and most unusual.

First of all, you don't have to pay to get into the fort. You can get a rickshaw from pretty much anywhere in town for around 80 rupee and you can choose between going up the Western or Eastern slope. The Lonely Planet suggests walking up to the Eastern Gate but, as picturesque as Gwalior Gate is, you won't get... More

This an amazing place. Lots of passageways and stairs. Great views, colourful. lots to explore. There are some fantastic views of the city from here. If you get there early you can get some terrific colour as the sun lights up the Fort. Downside, some areas have been used as urinals and smell pretty bad. Watch your step when exploring.
