Gwalior

Situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, around 321 km from Delhi, Gwalior holds a special position in the chapter of Indian history. Gwalior got its name from a famous saint Gwalipa who cured the Kachwaha clan chieftain from Leprosy. The history of Gwalior dates back to 8th century. Due to its position right between north India and south India, the city was captured many times by different dynasties like Tomars, Lodhis, Mughals and Marathas to gain power of this strategic location.
Gwalior's tradition as a royal capital continued until the formation of present day India, with the Scindias having their dynastic seat here. The magnificent mementoes of a glorious past have been preserved with care, giving Gwalior an appeal unique and timeless.
