Nice place to visit especially in evenings where site seeing can be combined with sound and light show. Surroundings are beautiful and Sunset visibility from the hill top view is excellent , like Sun is slowly dropping behind Gwalior city front view. (see photos attached) besides this few architectural parts of the fort are still as built just now with... More

A car is absolutely essential as the various attractions are located quite a distance from each other.

Such a large fort with a beautiful palace , temples and stunning views. The enamel work on the palace is very beautiful and the Jain temple caves leading up to the fort are quite amazing

I discovered this fort from a Windows screen saver. Once I saw the photo, I knew I must see this place. I was not disappointed. The fort is simply amazing.

If you are older (or lazier) folks like us, I advise you to have a car with driver (or a tuk-tuk) and arrive from the western side. That way, you can first visit the Jain statues, which are quite impressive. Too bad most of the faces were destroyed by the Mughals, but most have been restored ... by the British!... More

Get a tuktuk to the north east gate of the fort. The walk up is not too hard. The fort is gorgeous from outside. We spent about 3 hours total and then walked down to the south west past the jian statues which are amazing, if you travel by car up to this gate of the fort you will miss... More

The fort consists of two main palaces, Gurjari Mahal and Man Mandir, built by Man Singh Tomar. To be able to appreciate the nuances of the fort... More

The fort looks stunning from afar and close up, has a fascinating history and is effectively a very varied complex of treasures from different eras. A tour inside the Man Mandhir Palace was particularly good, but a guide is essential we thought.
