Gwalior cannot be seperated from its beautiful fort. The uneven level of the surrounding condition, makes the fort more interesting. I think the fort has 4 levels

The Gwalior Fort is kept in pretty good condition. The original Terra cotta paint is still intact. The fort has a museum on the premises.The Databandi chhod Gurudwara is worth a visit too.

Some part of the fort is always under renovation. Don't think it should restrict photography though.
Is it possible to be dropped at the Gwalior gate and then walk in ? Is it possible to walk up from the road?
