“Gwalior is soaked in history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2011

The most exciting place in Gwalior is the huge fort perked on a sandy stone. One can get a bird's eye view of the entire city .Gwalior fortress stands on a 100 mtrs high sand stone rock.The most picturesque in North India,the fort measures 2.5 km in length and about 200 to 725 mtrs in width.To reach the fort one has to go on foot or drive through winding roads. Needless to say we drove up all the way to the fort.It was amazing.
It has number of structures like Mansingh palace, Gurugovind singh Gurudwara where Gurugivind Singh was held captive, Sahsra Bahu temple to name a few. But the most captivating is the Mansingh Palace.

“Tryst with the history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2010

It left me awestruck in the first visit itself. It offers unique combination of the past and preserved. The fort is magnificient offering a peep into history. Guides are well trained and must to take.
Apart from the main attraction there is a beautiful temple, ruins to watch and a gurudwara which also is a history in itself.
I strongly recomment you to take a full day out and end the tour with the 'Light and Sound' show which is a must see. (Hindi followed by English; each 45 Min) which will summarise your tryst. It starts at 1930 in winters and 2030 in summers.
with a great connectivity from delhi, this is a NO-MISS, absolutely.

“Fort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2010

Gwalior fort is one two main attractions of the Gwalior city. Is an interesting weekend alternative. Located on the hill right in the middle of the city, a few kilometres form the railway station. You can easily spend there a few hours visiting places, ruins and temples (Hindu and Sikh). It is worth hiring a local guide to show you around.

hey i am suresh pujari.actually im from goa and i play for goa state in senior volleyball team ,recently in december 2009 we had gone to gwalior for senior national volleyball championship,there we had got one day free ,so we decided to see raja mansingh fort so we went by 2 autorickshaw from lnup i.e lakshmi bai university of physical education from there to the fort he took 80 rupees.

then it was our adventuros journey to explore huge magnificent artitechtural designs and ancient technology which was used to built the fort.

actually u require full 12 hrs to look full around the fort.at the topemost plateau of the fort u can see whole of gwalior city.the fort is built in such a way that it has many underground jails,water structures temples everthing is built with a mastered plan.
the fort is mostly adorable for architects civilengineers because of its marvelos designs
