Each room in the museum gives a glimpse of the royal life style and culture.I could never find the words to describe the beauty presented there whether it is the Dining room or the reading room or the children's room.Each having its own story to tell.But one thing that disturbed me was the brutal killing of the tigers and other wild fauna.Some of the Scindia family members has killed 8 tigers in one single day alone.After spending few hours in Scindia Musuem we moved to Gwalior Fort.
Gwalior Fort is one one of the highest forts in India made out of sandstone.It has been in the scene of momentous events, imprisonment, battles and jauhars . A steep road winds upwards to the fort, flanked by statues of the Jain tirthankaras, carved into the rock face. The magnificent outer walls of the fort still stand, two miles in length and 35 feet high, bearing witness to its reputation for being one of the most invincible forts of India.The major attractions on the fort are Gurjari Mahal,Gurudwara Data Bandhi,Saas-Bahu Temple,Teli-ka-mandir,Suraj Kund.It was getting dark and we still has to visit Tomb of Mohammad Ghaus and Tomb of Tansen.
With the visit to the Tomb of Tansen our exploration of Gwalior ended and we retired to our hotel dead tired but equally enthusiastic for our next day trip.
