  • Teli temple: Teli ka Mandir (Oilmen’s temple) is another famous temple adjacent to the Gwalior fort. Legend has it that the temple was built on donations by oil merchants, hence the name. The temple is also known as Telangana Temple because of the predominately Dravidian style of architecture. This 9th century edifice is probably the only temple in the region built in the South Indian Gopuram style. As with other temples here, this temple had to face the brunt of Mughal invasion and the statues on the walls are badly defaced. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, this temple is the tallest in height among all other temples here. A part of the temple was under restoration when we went. Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has been entrusted with the upkeep of all the temples here. Although much of the carvings have not stood the test of time, it is because of ASI, the structures of these ancient magnificent monuments have been kept intact.
  • Nice mandir having no GOD statue in it. Yes it is completely empty rather having piegion making noice. Really funny.
  • Nice mandir but you can't enter in mandir because of many bats living in the mandir
  • It was built in 11th century by the respective king and very beautiful architecture made by the artist. You can visit and see legency

Where to stay in Gwalior

Gwalior has numerous accommodations fairly evenly spread across the city center. Most international visitors find lodgings close to the main Gwalior Junction train station. With proximity to the major attractions as well as transport links, the hotels here are largely mid-range and budget, with some particularly affordable guesthouses on the residential side streets. Look farther to the west for more characterful hotels and guesthouses if planning to stay in the city for a while, to delve into its rich history and former regality.
