While driving to Gwalior Fort if one enters through Urvai Gate then this is the first sight you will see at your left. There is good amount of parking space near these rocks. Not many tourist visit here hence the area is all to yourself.

They have created nice walkway from where you can view these statues which are carved in rock. Few statues are of more height. It is said that these carvings are present from the time before fort was created.

One can just stop for few minutes here while going to fort and see this marvelous artwork.

A very very rare seen Attraction artefacts in this area.

A combination of spirituality, hard working , Skills of proper Rock cutting and Giant sculptures in a proper manner in a irregular rock-ways . Look likes a impossible to possible working way .

Jain Temple wide area with lot of Gems of Small to Giant sculpture .
Never ever miss to see them.
You can see from in the way of Urvi Gate entrance of Gwalior Fort Way or you can go threw Man gate on lower pathway near Gujri mahal

Must Have - Proper shoes, Hat or caps , water bottles.

Be respect the area because this is still a temple area .

Most of these temples carved out in the 15th century during the period of Dungar Singh, King of Tomar Clan. These rock cut sculptures varies from 5 feet to 40 feet in seating or in standing pose, having many sculptures of Jain Thirthankara.

Some Structures and sculptures are ruined and broken down from Mughal empire ruling time.

The Gopachal Parvat are a series of rock-cut Jain monuments depicting Tirthankaras in various Padmasana and Kayotsarga postures. I saw these on the way down from Gwalior Fort and they’re definitely worth stopping for if you have time. The statues have been around since the 7th century and in spite of their age the monuments have survived in fairly good condition and retain their splendour.

The photographs look incredible and we are disappointed we were unable to stop. Our tour guides said this might be worth a stop but our guide was even less enthusiastic. He said we may have time at the end of our itinerary.
We passed the site on our way up to and back from Gwalior Fort and the nearby Hindu temples. We glimpsed the site through the trees. It did not look very impressive and we decided not to stop.
With hindsight this bad decision was a combination of information and sightseeing overload and the difficulty in parking. The road was quite busy and traffic fast moving.
If we return to Gwalior we will make a visit.

This is holy place of jainism. Here you have to climb around 60-80 steps to reach this place. Though some sculptures are defaced and broken, the serenity of this place remain intact. It is sad to see such beautiful statues lies here in this condition. Must visit for art lovers

This place can be covered while going to Gwalior Fort. But you need to ask your taxi driver to stop at that place. Remember, most of taxi drivers will skip this place. No ticket is there for this place. Photography is also allowed free of cost.

The southern side of the path leading to Gwalior fort situated 100 m above from the town of Gwalior comprise of many Jain sculptures that are dated back to 15th century. Pay careful attention when you are driving to Gwalior Fort, these are on the left side a little time after your ascent of the hill starts. There is some parking place for your car. The Jain sculptures in Gwalior were defaced by the pillaging armies of the Mughal emperor Babur in 1527, but they were later restored.

If you are not paying attention on the way up, you might just miss this wonderful sight. There are several statues of Jain tirthankaras carved into the side of the hill that seem to have been quite badly eroded by the elements. The size of some of these is amazing - the largest among them is some 12 metres!
