Saas-Bahu ka Mandir + Gurudwara Daata Bandi Chhor Sahib – Gwalior

Saas-Bahu ka mandir‘ (no, it is not from a TV soap set 😉 ), or Sahastrabahu Temple, is located to the east of Gwalior Fort. Built in 1092 by King Mahipala of the Kachchhapaghata (Kachchhwaha) dynasty, this temple is one of the greatest architectural marvels situated by Gwalior Fort.

Gurdwara Data Bandi Chorh Sahib, situated in Gwalior, is associated with the imprisonment of Guru Har Gobind Sahib in Gwalior Fort and his celebrated release in which he managed to win the freedom of 52 Rajas (Kings) who had long suffered imprisonment in the Fort. The word “Bandi” means “imprisoned”, “Chhor” means “release”. “Diwali” is the day that’s celebrated as “Bandi Chhor Diwas” by Sikhs..
