I went to this fort on my third visit to Gwalior and I regret not going earlier. What a wonderful experience it was specially when you drive up towards the fort.. it feels you are in some ancient world with engraved mountain on one side. I could not take my eyes off. Must visit.

A music and light show organised every day in the evening by MP tourism development corporation was what I liked most. Its duration was about 50 minutes. It was organised in an open ampitheatre at the fort itself It was a unique experience to know about the history of Gwalior through effects created by light and sound.

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.

The massive fort on a cliff, 300 ft above ground level continues to epitomize Hindu architecture. At the foot hill you are greeted by huge Jain statues carved out of the mountain.

The Gwalior fort is huge and sprawling and stands on a hill above the city. I enjoyed walking up the path to the fort and exploring its various palaces and temples. The interior buildings are not grand or ornate like some other forts at Jodhpur, Agra or jaipur, but are still interesting. The fort transported me back in time. If... More
