Gujari Mahal Archeological Museum - Review
The Gujari Mahal was a gift of love from Maharaja Man Singh Tomar to his 9th consort, Mrignayani after he won her hand for marriage. The palace is within the Gwalior Fort premises but away from the main palace. Some say that the reason behind the separate palace was the Gujar Queen’s wish to have a palace with 24 hours water facility from the River Rai whereas some say that Mrignayani’s palace was built away from the main palace as she belonged to a lower caste and so was not allowed to stay under the same roof with the people of the royal blood.
This museum was later converted into a well maintained museum. Though the palace is not among one of the most important attractions here but is definitely a worthy visit. The architecture of the stone monument is just beautiful and the museum collection includes- devotional statues, weapons, stone work art objects, bronze antiques, etc. The most attractive work here is the depiction of the birth of Lord Krishna and Lord Vishnu’s head. These expert pieces are really above all explanations. The two remarkable attractions here are the Indian Mona Lisa and the Gyraspur Shalabhanjika Structure.
