This heritage trail will begin from the south-east entrance of the Gwalior Fort to the famous Jain rock-cut caves and continue towards the Assi Khamba Baodi which is situated at a height of about 300 feet next to the Man Singh Palace (established around the 15th century). Built by a ruler of the Tomar dynasty, the Man Singh Palace is believed to be the most beautiful monument located in Gwalior. We shall also visit the Sas Bahu Temple (established in the 11th century), which is built in the North-Indian architectural style, and then visit Teli Ka Mandir, which represents south-Indian architectural styles (established in the 9th century), following which we shall visit Surajkund. Legend has it that in 8 AD, a chieftain named Suraj Sen was stricken by a deadly disease. He was cured by a hermit saint, Gwalipa, and in gratitude, he founded the city of Gwalior, which he named after the saint who had given him the gift of a new life.
The new city of Gwalior gave birth to great dynasties over the centuries, each leaving its mark and contributing to making it a capital renowned throughout the country. Today, Gwalior is a modern Indian city, vibrant and bustling.
The guided tour is free.
