Must see it.

This is an extraordinary site to see. Allow a morning to see it all at leisure. The remaining tiles are a treat to see and the interior stone work artfully carved.

This is one of the best "Forts" I have seen in India. It is well preserved and well-kept. Pay the 500 Rupees for a personal guide, it is well worth it. Our guide was very helpful and a fount of information about each room, and each King who has lived here. There are actually two attractions here, the main Fort... More

We visited the fort twice, once in the evening to see the light and sound show and again during the day. What a wonderful show it was and for the young and old, a captivating performance

Compared to other historical attractions that I've visited in India, Gwalior Fort was particularly disappointing. Other than the physical structure which is spread over a large area there is little to admire other than the view that it offers. There is a separate entry fee for each section of the Fort also. Inside were groups of languishing male youth giving... More

Definitely one of the best maintained forts in India and besides it has so much of history. We had a wonderful guide that made the stories come alive for us. Such a princely fort and what ramparts. What intricate designs...once upon a time when it was newly-built it must have been outstandingly beautiful... and to think all the semi-precious stones... More

Fort is big. Most of the parts were closed when we visited there. Within the fort you have to buy entry tickets for three palaces. Gurjari Rani ka Mahal is good. Johar kund etc are ok not much maintained.

It's awesome place to visit with family or bachelors but there is area of transport which need to improve. Anyone can take personal or public transport upto the gate but after that there is no public transport to take inside the fort as this fort is situated on the mountains/ on very high hight. I heard MP Tourism board working... More

I was mesmerized with the sheer brilliance of the structure and also they way they had planned it. Of course, you would also feel sorry for the way our heritage is being taken care off compared to all across the globe. Nevertheless, you will happy to be there and see what is still managed well by the ASI and the... More
