The Sahastrabahu temple, now mentioned in short as the Sas-Bahu temple. The history... the architecture, the craftsmanship, simply fabulous.

Beautiful architecture. Originally said to be a Vishnu temple called Sahasrabahu, over the time has become Sas-Bahu temple just because Vishnu was worshiped by Sas and Shiv was worshiped by Bahu

Saas Bahu Temple correctly named Sahasrabahu Temple is a beautiful architectural marvel in Gwalior near Gwalior Fort. This Temple belongs to Lord Vishnu the correct name of the Temple is Sahasra Bahu Temple meaning thousand hands of Lord Vishnu. The temple is very beautiful, calm, serene and peaceful you can spend quality time here. This temple was built in 11th Century and from then it's always remain a tourist attraction in Gwalior city. The entry ticket is available inside the Gwalior fort there is a common Ticket for Mansingh palace in Gwalior Fort, Saas bahu Temple and one more building I forget the name of that premise. If you are in Gwalior don't forget to see the Saas bahu temple along with Gwalior Fort.
A perfect example of ancient Hindu architecture. The precise cuts and the wonderful planning by our ancestors is a marvel. Unfortunately the temple is not well preserved the current structure is just a building where no Puja is conducted. If you bought tickets for Gwalior fort then you don't need to buy seperate tickets here.
