More Information: If you wish to visit Gwalior plan for 3 days considering your energy and spending sufficient hours in a particular visiting spot in this city. Even if you won't get tired, time will pass by so fast in a particular place. I made it in two days as i did not have much time in my hand and came to a conclusion how you can divide your plan in three days. Here it goes.

Day 1

Start your journey a bit early so that you can reach to Gwalior Fort area and start exploring on time. You can start with Man Singh Palace, you may take a guide if you want to know about the history. I did the same and i can say 100 rs is worthy enough to get the information they deliver. You can take beautiful pictures inside the mahal, the old rich architecture will amaze you for sure.

Then you can see Jahangir Mahal, Masjid Mughal Karan Mahal, Vikram Mahal, Sas Bahu Temple, Teli Ka Mandir, Sai Baba Mandir etc which comes under the same campus of the fort area. You can then visit Tomb of Mohammad Ghaus, Tomb of Tansen..which is nearby.. That's how you can spend your day one.

Day 2

You can start with Jai Vilas Palace. Remember one thing, Jai Vilas is closed on Sunday and Dasherra. The entry fees is 150 rs which is a bit high but if you go inside and visit the entire palace you can see the maintenance and amazing luxurious stuffs all over, you will not make any objection on which they ask for... The entire palace is pretty big and it will take around 3 hours to finish visiting.

After that you can go to Gopachal Parvat which is not so far from Jai Vilas, the amazing Jain sculpture made by cutting the stones of hill surface, will blow your mind.

At last you can visit Sun temple.. Evening aarti is amazing and the architecture of the temple is pretty good.

Day 3

On 3rd day you can plan for Bhadawana Waterfall which is near about 30 km from the city. This is absolutely a beautiful waterfalls. You can visit around October to December to get the good amount of water in waterfall. I personally could not make it up but one can easily plan for this.

Few points to remember

  • Staying nearby railway station will be an advantage, as you can get hotels and restaurants nearby, communications are good enough, railway station is the middle point of every visiting places, you can hop on City Center mall etc.
  • You can use local transport like sharing auto as it is going everywhere through out the city. I hardly found bus services locally.
  • Most of the food hotels nearby railway station are very costly and the variety and the quality of the food is a bit low. You can sort restaurants by your own. That may gives you the best result.
  • While visiting the fort area must carry water bottle. The whole trip may get very tiresome for a single day.

    Excellent photography and very user friendly description. I had been to all these places and must admit that one should visit this city once. It's worth a couple of days visit.
