Some are the Lakshmana Temple, Devi Jagdambi Temple, The Sanchi Stupa and Masoleum on the banks of the Betwa River.

I found the view from the terrace particularly charming with the scenery dotted with temples and cenotaphs, and spent some time relaxing there with the cool breeze blowing on my face. Coming out, I had another good look at the Palace. It was hard to believe that this Palace was of the seventeenth century.

Gwalior – Gopachal- The Glorious

By

Unfortunately ‘Teli ka Mandir’ and ‘Saas-Bahu’ temple, both these majestic temples are ‘monuments’ !
How tranquil it would be to hear the entrance bell ringing melodically, to breath in the combined fragrance of flowers and oil lamps and incense sticks, to see the hustle bustle of devoted feet and folded hands, and to submit to the rhythm of ancient chants echoing from the corridors!

After having an initial debate on which places to go to, we came to the official conclusion of touring Khajuraho, Orchha and Gwalior.

A Glimpse of Madhya Pradesh

By

My cousin brother had already visited Mandu once, so no one can guide us better than him. He asked us to visit ‘Jaahaj Mahal’ first. This palace has no entry fees. This is a very huge palace and it will take time to roam around. More than roaming, capturing photographs and selfies can take time. So, we all agreed to visit Jaahaj Mahal first. It is a beautiful palace having a small lake and a beautiful garden. This palace is maintained well.  The scenic view is very mesmerizing. Sharing some of the pics with my readers.
