It has stood tall for over 500 years, ruled and conquered by different rulers and has ben famous as Inia’s most invincible fortress back in the day. The circular towers decked with turquoise tiles are visible from a distance, making for a beautiful sight across the horizon.The fort can be approached by trekking upwards a steep slope, often aided by rudimentary public transport. Rock sculptures line the trekking path on the western side. The Gwalior fort includes three temples, six palaces and many water tanks.
