Heritage

Shivpuri is enriched with various tourist attractions. Shivpuri has the big attraction of its natural beauty and vast cultural heritage. Shivpuri, in the state of Madhya Pradesh, was once the summer capital of the Scindia clan of Gwalior and earlier, its dense forests were the hunting grounds of Mughal emperors when great herds of elephants were captured by Emperor Akbar. Much later, it was the Tiger that roamed the wooded hills and many a magnificent beast was ‘bagged’ by royal Shikaris. Today Shivpuri is a sanctuary for rare wildlife and avifauna. Its royal past has thus been transformed into a vibrant, hopeful present. Shivpuri has numerous palaces and lakes, which reminds of the splendor this place must have seen during the rein of Scindias.
