Gwalior Fort

Gwalior has one of India's greatest forts, belonging to Hindu rulers before it was taken by the Turks and then the Mughals. A ninth century temple has the earliest text with the numeral zero (0) - used in the description of a place where flowers were grown. The Man Singh Palace (also known as the Chit Mandir or Painted Palace) is richly decorated and has traditional paved internal courts.
