  1. Gwalior Fort is still a highlight from our trip to India. I don’t remember hearing about the palace though. Always a reason to return 😊 Maggie

    1. Definitely! The palace is huge, and the rooms are well-maintained. I found some rooms are even more exquisite than their European counterparts 🙂

  2. I love the turquoise, green, and yellow accent of Man Mandir Palace against the earthy tone of the formidable walls. This subtle color addition really makes this massive structure “pop” without becoming too gaudy. I’m also in awe of Sas-Bahu temples thanks to those beautiful and intricate carvings. I don’t understand why Gwalior only sees a tiny fraction of tourists given its relative proximity with Agra, but I guess this makes it even more appealing.

    1. I found it’s strange as well. The two cities are well connected, by road and by trains. There might be some cows on the national highway, but that’s not a big deal for local drivers 🙂

  3. Thank you for this post. As it happens my great-grandfather worked for Scindia, the Maharajah of Gwalior, late 19th century. My grandmother was born nearby. One of her brothers was born in Agra. I have very few photos form that era so yours are very interesting. How’s the train ride from Delhi to Agra and from Agra to Gwalior?

    1. Wow! Those photos are real treasures. I only know the faces of my great-grandparents from my mother side. On my father side, there are only a few drawing images.

      Regrettably, I didn’t take the train during this trip. The train schedule didn’t fit well with my itinerary. But after seeing the congested National Highway 44, I might consider the train option by my next visit 🙂

      1. I think you should take the road between Delhi and Agra. It is in excellent condition. But from Agra to Gwalior, I recommend taking the train. The road is full of trucks and cows. It took me 3-4 hours to travel 120km.
