Sas-Bahu Temple, Gwalior

Home » Destinations » Gwalior » Attractions » Sas-Bahu Temple

The Sas-Bahu Temple is located in the east side of Gwalior Fort. The irony lies in the fact that as the name suggests it is not the temple of sas (Mother in law) and Bahu (Daughter in law). The name emerged out of ‘sastrabahu’ which is another name of Lord Vishnu. The Sas-Bahu Temple is dedicated to one incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

It has carvings of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Godess Saraswathi on its door. There are two temple structures, one is small and the other is big. The temple is made of red sand stone with beautiful cravings of lotus. It has a pyramidal structure without any arches. It is built by King Mahipala of Kachwaha dynasty in 11th century.
