It's always a great day for me when I finds myself near our glorious past. The most beautiful and iconic Architecture made by Indian Kings.
This journey is about the visit to GWALIOR FORT, a 3km distance from GWL station. You will start admiring its beauty from its first view.
I had 5 hours to wait for my next train, so I picked up to visit Gwalior fort, Jorney started from station, auto charged ₹50 only to the Quila Gate, from gate its a ascending walk.
On your left, it will be beautiful gwalior city, on ur right a beautiful fort. The first thing you gets to visit is a temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu, and it has an ancient ZERO in the temple architecture.
After that a long walk till you reach the Lion's gate of the fort, a mesmerizing view will hold you. What a beauty it contains! Amazing.
There is a museum, in front of the lionsgate which has beautiful stone idols from nearby villages, map of the fort, ancient weapons all just in ₹5 ticket.
Then on left there is MAAN SINGH MAHAL.
A beautiful 3 storey building, a blackroom with sunlight and ventillated by natural air. It has several dark rooms and scary floors. It will be a fun to visit if u have crazy friends.
Then further right after you exit Man Singh Palace, a Jauhar Kund, Karn Temple, Lord Shiva Temple, Mughal time buildings made by Aurangzeb and several ancient buildings which will just hold ur hands to sit there with the ancient beauties.
A great photography marvel it is. The scenic view of the city from some points is quite amazing.
Then there is a Sikh Gurudwara, A Teli Temple, Saas Bahu Temple (Sahastrabahu Temple).
Everyplace is a jewel of architecture in itself.
