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. Plan a India trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

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.
