  • Beautiful & historical pond in Gwalior Fort. The Kund derives its name from king Suraj Sen who reined during 8th century. Place has an interesting story. Story goes like this. King Suraj Sen felt thirsty during hunting. He saw an ascetic & asked for water. Sage named Gwalipa directed the king to the pond. King not only quenched his thirst but at the same time was cured of his leprosy. As per desire of sage he fortified the area by building a wall which eventually turned into a Fort & city. King named the city as Gwalipa. Over a period of time Gwalipa became Gwalior. Small Shiva Temple is there. Pond has lotus flowers in season. Surrounding area is lush green. Remains open from morning to evening. No ticket.
  • Beautiful pond on the way to Gurudwara Data Bandi Chhod. There is a Shiv temple in the middle of it.
