Try visiting this place in the evening and must include '45 minutes Light and Sound show' in your itinerary. The show starts around 7 PM and Amitabh Bacchan's voice (English/Hindi) really enthrals you. An excellent... More

Looking at the fort, we all had one massive feeling within us," How accomplished and strong is Indian history that retains the splendor and magnificence through such monuments that stand unhurt by the wars and battles all these years.

Gwalior Fort is an embodiment of history, architecture and elegance. History of Indian Classical Music, Suppression, Love story of kings and bravery of Rani Jhansi all combined in one. One must visit this fort in evening time when you will get to see the light show which describe its history in full and brilliantly.
