  • The Sarod Museum called SAROD GHAR* is a unique institution devoted to promoting Indian classical music, heritage and culture. Under the aegis of Haafiz Ali Khan Memorial Trust, through this 'window' to the past, music lovers can gain a better understanding of the evolution and history of North Indian Classical Music and can get a deeper perspective and insight into the context of the art as it exists today. The City of Gwalior is famous as an ancient seat of culture with a colourful history going back to the sixth century. Due to its location in the heart of India, it has been a melting pot of cultures and civilizations. This synthesis has manifested itself in a highly developed musical tradition reaching a peak during the reign of Emperor Man Singh Tomar in the early sixteenth century. Mian Tansen, perhaps the best known vocalist of all times was born in Gwalior in 1606, reaching the pinnacle of frame in the court of mogul emperor Akbar. The aim of setting up this institution is to create awareness and respect for classical music, musicians and the variety of instruments of India. The museum houses a collection of old and contemporary instruments, belonging to great and illustrious musicians of the past, on which they pursued their practice. Their immortality is thus enshrined in this institution. SAROD GHAR also houses an impressive collection of photographs and documents. Work on compiling a database on classical music in the form of books, articles, audio and audio-visual recording is in progress. The road on which the museum stands has been named Haafiz Ali Khan Marg by the Govt. of Madhya Pradesh.
  • All musical instruments of Ustad Amjad Ali Khan displayed with other historical milestones of his life. However renovation is going on. Hence will take 4 months to reopen. Also parking is a problem hence use taxi. Must visit for music lover and children
  • "This Museum of Music has been set up in the ancestral house of Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan. It houses instruments and photographs of the past masters of Indian classical music, giving music lovers an opportunity to understand the evolution of the art."
  • People having interest in musical instruments should visit
