Heritage of Gwalior & Morena – Episode 1

Starting with our new series of Heritage videos .. here’s Episode 1 from our trip to GWALIOR and MORENA 🙂

In this quick video we get introduced to the majestic city of Gwalior and see glimpses of what lies ahead in this Heritage Trip 🙂 Happy Exploring!

Bhateshwar Temple Complex + Shani Mandir

Bhateshwar: Truly Mystical! This is an archaeological site comprising about 200+ ancient shrines in Morena district, Madhya Pradesh. The shrines in Bateshwar complex are dedicated mostly to Shiva and a few to Vishnu. The temples are made of sandstone and were built around 300 years before Khajuraho temples were built!

Our video-blog about this trip can be found here.

Also, here‘s an informative documentary depicting how these temples were restored with help from locals and even the dacoits of chambal!

Shani temple: On our way back we visited this ancient Shani temple which has an interesting story of lord Hanuman associated with it 🙂 We also met the pet deer and it’s cute little cub 🙂

Temple and Fortress at Garhi Padhavali – Madhya Pradesh, India

This temple is believed to be a 10th Century Shiva temple owing to the grand statues of Nandi at the entrance. The interiors comprise of beautifully carved sculptures depicting stories from the Puranas and several other mythological epics. Later in the 19th century the temple was fortified by the Jat Ranas rulers thereby giving it a local name as “Garhi” which means a small fort/fortress! Yet again , amazing experience here 🙂
