  • Great place to get some photographs clicked, and enjoy the view of a very big fort with many attractions. 
  • the fort is hugeeeeeee , and i mean by indian standards, must be in top 10 big indian forts. the local administration needs to pay more attention though. 
  • If you are in Gwalior, you should visit this fort. It's looks very beautiful from outside &inside is a lot of history to know. Fee of enteranc is a bit expensive but it worth it. 
  • Wow one of the best place to visit in gwalior , and yes there is a gurudwara also and lunger is awesome.
  • I like this place so old , like Raja man Singh bhuriya's bhul bhulaiyya
  • There are 3 forts in this area, first man singh palace, second karn palace and third vikram palace
  • Gwalior fort is so old and they creative is so beautiful , and they are many emperor are stay and win , they are come in news when maharani laxmi bai are come and British army are follow and they are die due too long jump are the fort .. in the end of century British help to scindiya emperor to capture it
  • What used to be a prior tourist place is now slowly turning into a regular Hangout place for the youth of the city. Crowded with tourist on weekends, this place is worthy of exploration by any first timer tourist. Along with forts there is huge Arena of history once you get on top of that mountain. Best time to visit is for early morning walks to see the sun rise.
