56. Sahastrabahu Temple, Gwalior Fort, India

This 9th century temple is in premises of Gwalior Fort in the city of Gwalior, 100km South from Agra and its name means Thousand Hands form of Lord Vishnu.
We went here as we saw so incredible construction on top of the hill that we just wanted that our prayers are made from this place, too.

The whole temple is carved with beautiful carvings that are worth seen. In above of its entrance door 4 idols of Bramha, Vishnu and Saraswati is carved.

Behind the main temple there is also a smaller temple, because of Lord Vishnu was worshiped by the wife of the Kachchhapaghata's king but when the his son's wife came, she was a devotee of Lord Shiva and thus another temple beside Vishnu temple was build were Lord Shiva was worshiped by the wife of son of the king.

So after half hour walking up to the hill where the fort is located we reached the top of it, found the temple, did our prayers and also wished happiness to everyone from this incredible place.

Om Namo Narayanaya
