Gwalior is a neat and tidy city, good for a 2 day trip. The fort and the palace, the main attractions of the city both can be covered in 1 day. 2nd day can be utilised for shopping at the Bada market. Don't miss out to be around Bada in the evening, it has some beautiful architectural buildings which are lit up at dusk.

Small city with the Gwalior fort and the Scindia palace as the tourist spots. The Tansen mausoleum is another highlight . Not much by way of street food

Gwalior has beautiful architecture and historical sites that are worth seeing. The fort and statues on the way up in particular. There are nature visits too but did not have time to do. It is cheap to eat out but be careful. There are very nice places to stay if you look.

It’s not set up for western tourist too much and needs cleaner food options. The streets are more polluted compared to other cities I visited.

Gwalior is a short train journey from Delhi and an easy weekend spend.
Gwalior is a place with history and a subject that resonates with me.
Two to three days is enough for the place.
The destinations can be divided into three main attractions :
1 Gwalior Fort with the Jain statues, the two prominent temples, Palace, Gurudwara Data Bandi chod.
Within a short driving distance all in one complex.
2. Rest of the city including Sun Temple (recent addition), tomb of Tansen, palaces in the city, katora tal.
The last ace, katora tal, is a fitting tribute to Tansen with musical fountains synced with classical Ragas.
All the places are scattered in the city.
3. Around the city, the complex of Bateswar, Padawali, Mitawali. The Bateswar complex is a sheer delight with the excitement of seeing history restored. These sites are 35 - 40 km from Gwalior and are in the same axis.

I visited this city for a couple of days after Agra and Delhi. If you like history, then this is a great city to visit for it's historical connection to Rajputs, Delhi Sultanates and Mughals. My itinerary included the tombs of Tansen and Muhammad Ghaus, the Ghaus and Gwalior Fort. The latter includes Gujari Mahal, the Jain monuments of Gopachal Parvat and the Sas Bahu Temples.

The city is definitely worth a least one day, but two would be good too.

If you visit Gwalior then do visit the Gwalior Fort and Museum. Its a place to spend time which takes you back to the royal era.

On 22nd we started from Delhi by hired car at 6.00am. We reached at 3.00pm because of the CNG fuel car and the unprofessional driver. On that evening we visited Gopachal, a Jain mandir in the caves. An excellent place to visit and then headed for the light and sound program on top of Gwalior fort. Tourists are informed that only hired cars are allowed to go to the top. The autos will drop you at the base and walking will be the only option left to the visitors. A good program to attend.Again we had much difficulty in getting a cab for going down.Next day we visited the Jai Vilas Palace museum.This is one of the best museums in India.A must see for all visitors to Goa. The other worth visiting spot is the Sash Bahu mandir. A nice weekend family visit ended on Sunday.
I would advise the Fort lovers to visit Gwalior in winter and be careful with the auto drivers.They charge exorbitantly. From Delhi availing train service is better than travelling by the road. The only issue is the return Jansapabdi express reach Delhi very late at night.
