Gwalior

Sacred & Religious Sites · Ruins · Monuments
The historic city of Gwalior offers an introduction to the medieval dynastic politics of the region. Passed from the Tomars to the Mughals, to the Marathas and then the Scindias, the city has seen its fair share of change over the years. Still, many of its historic fortifications and palaces remain well-preserved, or have been rebuilt to a high standard. A typical Gwalior itinerary will include imposing forts, regal residences, and storied temples, as well as local museums helping to explain the complex history of the old city.
