Think Outside the Golden Triangle at Park Inn by Radisson Gwalior
In life and work, we are forever being told to “think outside the box” – to find creative solutions and new ideas. But what if you need fresh inspiration for your travels? In India, if you’re seeking an escape with a difference, you need to think outside the triangle!
The Golden Triangle – the popular tourism circuit connecting Delhi, Jaipur and Agra – is famed for its beauty and heritage. But guests who want to step off the tourist trail should head to Gwailor. Not far to the south (just 120km from Agra), across the state border in Madhya Pradesh, Gwalior is filled with historical and cultural treasures. It hasn’t always been easy to find affordable, international-standard accommodation in Gwalior, but that changed with the opening of Park Inn by Radisson Gwalior, a bright and inviting midscale hotel that puts guests close to many of the city’s main attractions.
The most dramatic of these is surely Gwalior Fort, which occupies a hill overlooking the city. Once described as the “pearl in the necklace” of India’s forts, this breath-taking building showcases the city’s rich heritage. Within the fort, the Sas Bahu Temple dates from the 9th Century and is covered with exquisite carvings. On the mountain slopes below, Gopachal Parvat features 26 immense rock carvings, the oldest of which are thought to date back over 1,300 years, making them the world’s oldest Jain monuments.
More recently built but no less spectacular, Jai Vilas Mahal is an amazing European-style palace with arcades, colonnades, gold furnishings and huge chandeliers. It is open to the public.
After a day of discovery, guests can return to Park Inn by Radisson Gwalior to indulge in a spot of retail therapy at the DB Mall, which is adjacent to the hotel and enjoy a delicious meal at the RBG restaurant. Then get a great night’s sleep in your Deluxe Room, which features a comfy bed, Smart TV, free Wi-Fi and a private terrace with views of Gwalior Fort – a wonderful reminder of your adventure.
