Survaya Ki Garhi validates India’s resplendent past in many ways. As the name Shivpuri suggests, the town is named after Lord Shiva, an Indian deity. Temples from ancient India are a regular sight in and around Shivpuri. With modern developments around the city, it is easy to feel like a tourist in Rome when every turn leads to an ancient relic right alongside modern buildings.
20 kilometers outside of Shivpuri, close to the Shivpuri – Jhansi Road, lies the small town called Survaya Ki Garhi. A serene lake adds to the old world charm of the small town. An ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is located in the town, making it historically significant.
While the art and architecture of the temple are awe-inspiring, the Garhi is truly a sight to behold. The Garhi is an auditorium completely built out of stone. Echoes of dance recitals and musicals from a time long ago still linger in the auditorium.
