Gujari Mahal Museum

Location: Gwalior Fort, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh

Situated within the premises of the gigantic Gwalior Fort, the Gujari Mahal Archaeological Museum preserves historical treasures and exquisite sculptural masterpieces. It is said that Gujari Mahal was built by Raja Mansingh Tomar for his Gujar Queen Mrignayani. As the queen belonged to a lower caste, this palace was built away from the main fort.

The aerial view of the museum (see image) speaks of the impressive architecture of Gujari Mahal. This beautiful stone structure houses devotional statues, weaponry, stone-work artifacts and bronze antiques. The representation of Lord Krishna’s birth and Lord Vishnu’s head speaks of the extraordinary skills of the artisans of that time. The key attraction of the fort are the Gyraspur Shalabhanjika sculpture and the Indian Mona Lisa statue.

Though the museum is not so popular among tourists, it is worth exploring.

Entry Fee: Rs. 10 per person
