At a distance of 321 km from Delhi, Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, once known as Gopalkash holds a special place in the chapters of Indian history. One of the finest traditional cities ever established, it was founded by warrior Suraj Sen as reverence to sage Gwalipa who cured him of leprosy.

The Gwalior fort, atop a hill overlooking the city has been the battleground for many struggles for power. Historically rich and architecturally magnificent, this destination attracts many tourists for its pre-medieval charms. The city once the centre of Jainism is also famous for the Tansen Music Festival held here every year in the month of November and December at the Tansen Memorial. Many renowned prodigies of classical music perform here attracting huge number of music lovers.

While exploring the charms of Gwalior, shop for exquisite handicrafts and antique showpieces that are great memorabilia to take back after your trip. There are many government run shops inside the Gwalior fort as well which offer a huge variety of souvenirs.
