History creates legends.But its also right that the legend rights the history itself. Raja Maan Singh Tomar the emperor of Gwalior was one of the legends who created the history.The fort of Gwalior itself is a witness of Maan Singh was the master of architecture,  ruling , literature and music , developer penetrator of art and pet hearted.

"छत्रपति मान रजा तुम चिरंजीवी रहो

जों लों ध्रुव केरु तारो

चहुँ देश के गुनी जन आवत

तुम पे धावत

पावत मनन इच्छा , सबहीं को जग उजियारो "
