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.

Good collection for stuff. Clean campus, peaceful environment, simple to navigate. Overall a good place to spend some time at when the weather is cool
Historical, very famous place in Gwalior (Fort). It has one of the best collection of sculptures and battle Arms in separate area. Also it's to inform you about photography is prohibition here, you take photograph on your risk. Beware about your camera and mobile photograph.
ग्वालियर तस्वीरें, गुजारी महल - प्यार का प्रतीक An aerial view of the fifteenth century old Gujari Mahal.💒 It is a symbol of love💓 built by Raja mansing Tomar for his beloved wife.
Nice place to visit. Gets very hot in summer. Best time in only winter season.
The museum, located inside an old palace, is a little hiden gem, clearly known to only a few. It has one of the best collection of sculptures in India, and one can enjoy them completely undisturbed, a rare privilege in the country. The state of upkeep is in line with the visitor numbers, last renovation must have been made in the days of the Maharadja, but this only adds to its charm and appeal. The sculptures are magnificent, and fortunately they do not need any upkeep, on the contrary the less they are touched the better. Definitely not to be missed. Note: this museum is not to be confused with the Archaeological Museum up in the fort, these are two very different places.
