Teli Ka Mandir, Gwalior

This is the most impressive of all the temples in the Gwalior fort. This temple dates back to the 9th century, and is constructed by the Pratihar Kings. (Click on all the images for bigger picture)

front portion
This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Inside the fort this is one of the tallest structure and its height is 100ft. This temple architecture is a combination of the Dravidian (from South India) and the Indo-Aryan (North Indian). The roof is typically Dravidian but the sculptures and embellishing inside are Indo Aryan in nature.
