Gwalior Fort has to be the star tourist attraction of the city. The fort is so huge and holds so many places to visit that even 7 or 8 hours might not be enough to explore the Gwalior Fort to minute details. Though it is difficult to ascertain the exact construction timeline for this fort, but many inscriptions within its ramparts indicate that Gwalior fort existed even as early as 6th century. Perched on a hilltop and overlooking the glorious city of Gwalior, the fort has tourist attractions in every corner. Here are some that you should not miss:
Man Mandir Palace:
The first stop for any tourist is the Man Mandir Palace, which was built by Mansingh Tomar in the late 15th century. The vast chambers of this palace were once believed to have glittered with exquisite stones and tiles. Some remnants of those glory days still exist at the entrance of the palace.
This is a monument of love built by Man Singh Tomar for his queen of Gurjari descent, Mrignayani. There is a romantic tale associated with this monument. After the king had wooed Mrignayani, he granted her three wishes. So, Mrignayani asked for a separate palace that would have constant water supply from the River Rai. As a result, the grand Gujari Mahal was built. Today, the Gujari Palace has been converted into an archaeological museum and has many great relics that would enrich your trip experience.
Teli ka Mandir:
Built by the famous Pratihara emperor, Mihira Bhoja, it is a rectangular shaped monument that is a blend of the South and North Indian styles of architecture. Teli ka Mandir has a South Indian styled barrel vaulted roof and North Indian Nagari architecture inside. There are sculpted images of goddesses, flower decorations and even romantic couples inside the temple. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, Vishnu and other goddesses.
Sas-Bahu (or Sahastrabahu) Temple:
This is another masterpiece of architecture. Sas-Bahu temple was built in 1093 and is known for its fine carvings and overall architecture. There are two temples within the same structure, one goes by the name of Sas while the other is called Bahu. Thus the temple is named Sas Bahu. It is dedicated to Vishnu in his Padmanabha form.
Towards the southern part of Gwalior Fort, lies a series of rock cut Jain monuments. The height of these rock-cut monuments varies from 6 inches to 57 feet. The idol of Bhagwan Parsvanath in his padmasan posture is the most striking image here.

Post lunch take a short ride to the mausoleum of Tansen. Tansen was a legendary singer and is considered to be the father of Hindustani classical music. As you know, Tansen was one of the Navratnas at Emperor Akbar’s court and it is believed that when the musician died in Delhi, he was personally escorted back to Gawlior by the Emperor himself. His last rites were performed at this site and later the mausoleum was built to keep his memory alive. The mausoleum bears Mughal style of architecture and there are beautiful gardens on all sides.
Chhatris of the Scindia dynasty are the prominent attractions of Gwalior. Known for their architectural beauty and grand appearance, Chhatris are a must visit while you are in Gwalior. The first Scindia chhatri was built at this site in 1817 as memoribilia for Jayaji Rao Scindia. Since then many such elevated and dome-shaped pavilions have been erected. While touring through the Chhatris do not miss the monuments built in honor of Jayaji Rao Scindia, Daulat Rao Scindia and Janko ji Rao Scindia. These Chhatris carry the beauty of medieval architecture and are decorated with various stone carvings of elephants, tigers and horses.
Shop & Dine at Patankar or Sarafa Bazaars:

Buy what you want. While you shop, you will come across many street food stalls. Do satiate your hunger as and when required. You will be wasted for options. But do care to taste Karela Chaat, Lambi Paani Poori and crunchy Kachoris with a tangy Tamarind Chutney. For dessert, taste some fresh Imartis and Petha Gilori from Panchhiraj Petha at Phalka Bazaar.
Situated in the Phool Bagh area of Gwalior, Gandhi Zoo (also known as Gandhi Prani Udhyan) is a beautiful zoo which serves as a home to many rare species of animals including the white tiger.
