The magnificent twin-temple complex of Shahastrabahu Temple displays rare architectural brilliance with masterfully carved facades. Built in 1092 on a 32x22 m (104 x 72 ft) base, the temple sits on the banks of lotus-covered Lake Bagela, offering a scenic view of the city of Gwalior. Not in use for worship, the site offers serenity without rituals or festivities. Roam around freely and admire the masterfully carved edifice, including idols of Saraswati, Brahma, and the 1,000-armed Lord Vishnu. Enhance your visit by hiring a guide on site to explain the images and painstakingly restored architecture.
