One of the most historically rich cities in India, Gwalior attracts thousands of tourists every year. Built in the 15th century by Raja Mansingh Tomar, the Gwalior Fort is the prime attraction of this city. Its location on a hilltop makes it an ideal viewpoint as well, from where tourists can behold panoramic views of the city. Within the fort, there is a beautiful palace called the Man Mandir that appeals every tourist at the very first glance with its intricate carvings and impressive paintings. Often referred to as the Chitra Mandir or Palace of Paintings, this palace stands as a true reflection of Raja Mansingh Tomar's love for art. There are also temples in the precinct of the fort and one of the most popular among them is the Telika Mandir. This 9th century temple flaunts a marvellous Dravidian style of architecture. Built by G. D. Birla (renowned industrialist), the Surya Mandir is another important place of tourist interest in Gwalior.
