A new section of Gwalior has come into existence and is known as Lashkar. Lashkar lies at a distance of a few miles to the south of the old city. There can be observed exquisite palaces, splendid rock temples, elegant statues and white sandstone mosque all over Gwalior. The dominating and the most fascinating structure of the city of Gwalior is the Gwalior Fort.


The Fort : The Gwalior Fort is the icon among the structures of the city of Gwalior. The fort wonderfully stands on a mass sandstone. The Mughal emperor Babur was enchanted by the splendour and magnificence of the fort and described it as " the pearl among the fortresses of Hind". The outer walls of the fort are no less wonder for the onlookers. The wall runs 2 miles in length and soars up to a height of 35 feet.

Teli Ka Mandir : The Teli ka Mandir is a 9th century edifice, towering at 100 ft high. This is a Pratihara Vishnu temple of a unique blending of architectural styles. The shape of the roof is distinctively Dravidian, while the decorative embellishments have the typically Indo-Aryan characteristics of Northern India. Also dedicated to Vishnu is the graceful little Sas-Bahu-ka-Mandir, built in 11th century. Another landmark is the historic Gurudwara Data Bandhi Chhod built in the memory of Guru Hargobind Sahib, the 6th Sikh Guru who was imprisoned here...
