About Gujari Mahal Archeological Museum, Gwalior

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.

  • The Gujari Mahal Archeological Museum, sometimes called the "Gwalior Fort Museum", is a state museum in Gwalior, located in the fortress of Gujari Mahal, also orthographed Gujari Mahal.[1] It displays numerous artifacts of the region, including a fragment of the Garuda capital of the Heliodorus pillar from Vidisha.[2] The palace of Gujari Mahal was built by Raja Man Singh Tomar for his wife Mrignayani, a Gujar princess. She demanded a separate palace for herself with a regular water supply through an aqueduct from the nearby Rai River.[citation needed] The palace has been converted into an archaeological museum. Rare artifacts at the museum include Hindu and Jain sculptures dated to the 1st and 2nd centuries BCE, miniature statue of Salabhanjika, terracotta items and replicas of frescoes seen in the Bagh Caves

  • Another palace just close to Kila road gate of the Fwalior fort. It was closed when we reached here in evening so could not visit inside.

  • Gujari Mahal was built by Tomar king Mansingh in 1486-1516. In this palace, an Archaeological Museum was established in 1920 by M.V. Garde, which was opened in 1922 for the audience. It is a symbol of the deep love of King Mansingh and the graceful Queen Mriganayani. According to the conditions of the queen, King Mansingh arranged to bring the drinking water to palace through the pipes from Maihar Rai village of Mrignayani, which was located 16 miles from Gwalior. Many artifacts have been made by digging on the stone segments of the palace. It is a double-storey building whose outer part is kept unchanged by the Archaeological Survey of India while the inside part has been converted into a museum. In the 28 rooms of this museum, rare ancient sculptures have been kept from Gwalior and surrounding areas. Gujari Mahal is near the Gwalior Gate of the fort.
