Also described as the 'pearl in the necklace of the castles of
Hind ', this fort dominates the city's skyline with its massive
and captivating structure. Its dazzling beauty, which is a blend

Lashkar - The New Town
Deriving its name from the word 'lashkar' (military base), this
town was founded by Daulat Rao Scindhia. Home to the famous Jai
Vilas Palace and Museum, the Moti Mahal, Royal Chhatris, and the
Vishnu Temple among others, it gives us a very good idea about
its history and the changes that have taken place in Gwalior
over the year.
It has a thick forest cover and the countryside is sparsely
populated. M.P with its magnificent pink cliffs, wild waters,
architectural ruins and paintings made in rock shelters,
illustrates the fact that the history of the state goes back
half a million years. Holding most of India's mineral deposits,
it also houses two of India's best National Parks - Kanha and
Bandhavgarh. M.P. echoes with the history of great heroes, who
left behind them breathtaking masterpieces of Indian
architecture. It is a destination with a legendary past, and its
temple architecture and awesome landscape of ravines and
mountains are a sight to behold.
