Mitavali Temple

Around Gwalior there are plenty of places of historical importance. One among them is Mitavali located at a distance of 40 kms from Gwalior. As it is 15 kms from Padavali, we reached this place after covering Padavali. (Click on all the images for bigger picture)

The temple is situated on a small Hill with a small village at the foot of the hill. One has to climb approximately 150 to 200 uneven steps. The steps to the temples were carved out of the hill.

The design of this Shiva temple is incredible and unique. This is a 500 year old temple but very little is known about this temple.

The temple architecture is totally different from any other temple in India. The temple is circular shape with no overhead tower. In fact the it is believed that the design of Indian Parliament is based on this temple.

From here we moved back to Gwalior to cover other local sights.

Distance: Mitavali ---> Gwalior 40 kms
