The fort of Gwalior is one of the most ancient forts of India, as proven by the study of the epigraphs found here
The #earliest #inscription in the fort is found in the Sun Temple, which was built in 530 AD during the reign of Mihirakula, and refers to him as “the #lord of the earth”

The Teli temple of the Gwalior Fort was constructed by Mihira Bhoja between the 8th century and #9thcenturies
In 1232, it was #captured by Iltutmish, and an inscription was made by him on the Urwahi Gate

It was later seen by #Babur in 1527, which he recorded: “Above the Gate leading from the valley to this walled-well, the name of Sultan Shihabu’d-Din Ailtmish (Iltutmish) is inscribed, with the date A. H. 630 (1232 AD).” However, this epigraph was lost and could not be traced later.
