  • The thing it is mostly famous for is that this was the home of the world renowned Sarod player Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. Now turned to a museum of music. The big let down about this place is the bad traffic at its location. Otherwise the collection of various musical instruments is definitely worth checking out. Sarod Ghar itself is quite beautiful too. It perfectly fits into the list of "places to go" in the historic city of Gwalior.

  • Home of a great music master ustad Hafiz Ali khan, presently his son ustad amjad Ali Khan is mesmerizing with its sarod. Sarod ghar is a museum of the legacy various maestros his instruments and photos are the unique things we can see here.

  • Silver sarod is very unique. Very Good place for music lover
