has a rich historical legacy. It is synonymous with the oldest
fort- built in 525 AD. Man Singh, the Tomar King built the beautiful,
six towered Man Mandir palace adjoining the fort in the 15th
century. Two of its floors are burrowed in the 300 ft high hill
of the fort. The Gwalior fort was captured by the Marathas in
1784 and was the scene of a major uprising during the Indian
mutiny of 1857 known for the heroic role of Rani of Jhansi.
the fort are a mosque on the shrine of Saint Gwalipa, the Chaturbhui
temple of Vishnu and five groups of Jain sculptures. Other notable
temples in the fort are the Sas Bahu temple and Teli ka Mandir.
Outside the fort are the tombs of Muhammad Ghaus, a Moslem saint
and Tansen, the famous musician of Akbar’s court.
