Things to Do in Gwalior

Enshrined in the heart of India, Gwalior is a memorable city. Its forts and palaces are dominating architectural wonders only paralleled in their magnificence by its intricate temples and tombs. To visit Gwalior is to go back hundreds of years into the past when rajahs ruled the land and powerful mystics roamed the streets. The charming historicity of the city blends in unobtrusively with the modern buildings that are coming up all around and changing the vibe of Gwalior from a laid-back central Indian town to a city that is fast becoming one of the most important centres of trade in India. One of the best things to do in Gwalior is a circuit of the city which will reveal many grand palaces, all built in unique styles. Jai Vilas Mahal, Gujari Mahal, Man Singh Palace, Jahangir Mahal, and Rang Mahal are some of the palaces that beautify the city. All of them are open to the public and some of them even house museums that offer insights into the history of the city. The interiors are supreme in their blend of European architecture and traditional Indian furnishings. A sense of aristocracy still pervades many of these palaces. But while the interiors are lovely, it is the views that can be seen from the palaces that fascinate every tourist. Panoramic landscapes encompassing the sprawling city and the open countryside reveal the strange beauty of Madhya Pradesh in one go.

Temples and historical monuments add further zest to the vibrant city. Saas-Bahu Temple, Chaturbhuj Temple, Sun Temple, Teli Ka Mandir, and Golaka Mandir attract tourists year-round while garden sites like Amma Maharaj Ki Chathri allows tourists to enjoy serenity in the midst of the city’s bustle. While many museums testify to the grandeur of the city’s past, the grandest historical monument of Gwalior is the Gwalior Fort, the fort that Babar considered the pearl among fortresses. Many important temples and structures are located inside the fort, making it a wonderful tourist attraction. An aristocratic city with a proud past and the best things to do in Gwalior, it certainly is a magnificent place to visit.
