The pair of temples made of sandstone were built by King Mahipala of the Kachchhwaha dynasty. It’s name is derived from Sahastra-bahu, another name of the ‘thousand-armed’ Lord Vishnu. As per the folklore, the wife of the king was a devotee of Lord Vishnu while her daughter-in-law worshipped Lord Shiva. Thus, ultimately two temples were built, one after the another.... More

This is a so so beautiful temple situated near Gwalior fort on the Beautiful Hills. The temple doesn't mean about the Relation about Mother-in-law and Daughter-in-law relation as this sounds in the Hindi. The temple is named after a God who had 100 hands.

The temple of Saas keeping in mind her status 😜 is much bigger in size and has intricate carvings all around !!! One is left amazed at the craftsmanship &... More

It's a beautiful temple and if you are visiting Gwalior fort then please make it a point to visit this temple. It's little away from the palace but please don't miss it.

The temple is located near the Gwalior fort and is a wonderful place to visit. Its name doesn't sound very inviting, but the architecture and the sculptures on the walls of the temples are absolutely wonderful. The restoration of the temples has been done wonderfully, even though both the main garbagriha's which are the main sanctums have been lost due... More

The architecture especially the layout is similar to khajuraho temples. The hard stone used for sculptures has preserved the initial beauty to this day. Quiet a few steps so be careful.
