Beautiful architecture. Originally said to be a Vishnu temple called Sahasrabahu, over the time has become Sas-Bahu temple just because Vishnu was worshiped by Sas and Shiv was worshiped by Bahu

This temple is near Fort area but still one needs a car to drive there as walking might take some time. The fort tickets are checked here at entrance. There is ample car parking space near temple.

This temple is "Sahasrabahu" but some how got name as "Saas Bahu". There are two temples in complex, the big one has marvelous architecture where has small one has beautiful cravings.

There are lot of bats inside these temples. The area around has greenery.

These two temples are so beautiful that one one can keep staring for hours. Temple seems to be vandalised by Muslims in past who defaced the idols and shikhar of it. There is no murti in the main sanctum sanctorum left. Yet, it's a great place to be.

Well this is combination of two temples , Actual name is "SAHASTRA BAHU MANDIR" (GWALIOR) and easy and easy and common name is SAAS BAHU MANDIR

Must Have - Water Bottle, Caps and ease shoes .
Tickets is online with Gwalior Fort combined ticket.Ticket window is in Fort not Here.

Proper Free parking just front of entry .

This is in the Boundary wall of Gwalior Fort on the top of hill .

All and main sculptures are broken down from Mughal Emperors orders. We get maximum sculptures as a ruined stage.
But still as building and as well as decorative carving art , sculptures , this is must seen attraction in that area.

Architecture - Dravidian Architecture, Nagara style Function , Temple Built in - 1092 AD, Built by - King Mahipal , Materials used - Limestone, red sand stone

it is a twin temple a larger one dedicated to Lord Vishnu lord with Thousand arms ( Sahastra Bahu ).The temple was built for the King Mahipal’s wife who was a devotee of Lord Vishnu , A smaller one dedicated to Lord Shiva built for her daughter – in – Law who was a devotee of Lord Shiva.

Both the temples are richly decorated with carvings of deities, human and animal figures, and geometric patterns .  It is difficult to find a piece of plane surface in this section that has not been carved, interlocking the horizontal and the vertical elements and to set up the images at the most appropriate places.

This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The architecture is the same as that found in the various Hindu and Jain temples in this area particularly Khajuraho area. The eye to detail is mind boggling. The temple is now showing the ravages of time. The mandapa inside is now supported by various girders but the beauty makes its presence.

The Sasbahu Temple (aka mother and daughter temples) is a 11th century Hindu and a Nagara style temple dedicated to Vishnu. What you see now was built up from the ruins. Although the temple has been put back together again, only about half the original structure is there and the rest you can tell is not original as it’s just plain bricks and rocks. There’s no need to go out of the way to see this temple, but if you’re visiting Gwalior Fort anyway, then it’s worth a detour if you have time.

This UNESCO site is near the better known Gwalior Fort. It is a short walk or car journey from the Fort.
It is a beautiful Temple with sculptures carved on the walls inside and out. There are similarities with the decorated temples found in Khajuraho but the latter are more erotic.
It is well worth the visit whether or not you are at the fort.

Sas bahu or Sahastrabahu temple is a beautiful temple close to the Gwalior fort entrance. A little hike or walk from fort entrance will take you there. Temple is a great example of Indian architecture which is almost thousand years old. Sculptures carved on the walls inside and outside the temple are very similar to the ones found in Khajuraho.
