Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Gwalior

Arrival From Gwalior Railway Station, Gwalior Sight Seeing, Gwalior To Orchha, Overnight Stay In Orchha.

Gwalior - Gwalior Owes Its Name To A Sage Of Former Times. The Story Goes That Suraj Sen, A Prince Of The Kachhwaha Clan Of The 8Th Century, Had Lost His Way In The Jungle.

On A Secluded Hill He Met An Old Man, Sage Gwalipa, Whose Influence Almost Took Him By Surprise. On Asking The Sage For Some Drinking Water He Was Led To A Pond. The Pool Waters Not Only Quenched His Thirst But Cured Him Of Leprosy As Well. Out Of Gratefulness He Wished To Offer Something In Return To The Sage And The Sage Asked Him To Build A Wall On The Hill In Order To Protect The Other Sages From Wild Animals That Often Disturbed Their Yagnas (Pujas). Later Suraj Sen Built A Palace Inside The Fort. Thus Came Up The Fort Named Gwalior, And Eventually The City That Developed Around It Got Its Name.
