A quick visit on the way back from the fort.
Feb 2020
This site does not look appealing from the road but is worth a stop although it looks dirty and over grown.
Surajkund is an old reservoir. According o legend a hermit named Gwalipa who lived in the grounds of the Fort cured Surij Sen of leprosy by giving him a drink from the water tank (Suraj Kind). The legend continues that the waters have magical powers.
The Kund is surrounded by attractive gardens and the ruins of numerous temples,
It is a quiet location and not very bus

Surajkund is an old reservoir constructed by Suraj Pal worshipper of Sun.Therefore built a Sun Temple on the western bank of the Kund. The kund is presently surrounded by the ruins of an ancient sun temple, coupled with a beautiful garden and a pool by the name of Siddha Kund. It is believed to have magical powers. Water from the tank act as a medicinal water that assumed to cure chronic diseases. Atmosphere around the Suraj Kund is quite attractive and well maintained.

The pond is seen as you drive by the fort. More or less was covered by weeds and we could see water lilies here and there. Was told that there is a Siva linga in the center of the pond.

Suraj Kund is a tank located in the Gwalior Fort. The kund was constructed in the 15th century though its history dates back to as early as 425 AD. Legend states that during this period a king named Suraj Sen went into the forest for hunting and was missing.

The king asked for water from the sage Gwalipa, who lived in the forest. The sage asked him to climb a hill for water. The water of the tank cured his leprosy and as a token of gratitude to the sage, he constructed the Suraj tank and a temple.

The local people still believe that the water in the tank has medicinal power. Beautiful surroundings and historical significance of the tank attract many devotees as well tourists every year.
