Tour of Gwalior



A tour of Gwalior offers tourists an insight of history and cultural legacy of the ancient city, sited in the heart of Central India. The city spans across an expanse of 5214 sq. km and is peppered with age-old temples, architectural edifices, majestic palaces, crenellated forts as well as other historically eminent landmarks.

The Gwalior tours are an eye-opener of the culture and glory of ancient India. The city was once ruled by several powerful Rajput monarchs hailing from the Tomar, Pratihara and the Kacchwaha dynasties. The city has many a claim to its fame and happens to be a much coveted tourist destination in the Indian subcontinent.

Gwalior city owes its nomenclature to Gwalipa, a wise savant who had the miraculous power to cure fatal illnesses. The city is opulent in magnificent tourist attractions that include the stunning Gwalior Fort, the spectacular Gujari Mahal whose origin can be traced back to the medieval era, the grandiose Man Mandir Palace and the imposing Teli ka Mandir that enshrines Lord Pratihara Vishnu. Apart from these places, there are several other primordial temples dotted all over the ancient city.

Another eye catching marvel, the Jai Vilas Palace that serves as the current residence of the Scindia family, also illustrates a perfect blend of the Corinthian and Tuscan architectural styles. The Gurudwara Data Bandhi Chhod is another significant edifice built to commemorate the memory of the 6th Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind Singh who had imprisoned there by the former Mughal ruler Jehangir.
