Saas or Sas Bahu Temple or Sahastrabahu Temple is located to the east of Gwalior fort. This temple was built in 1092 by King Mahipala of the Kachchhapaghata dynasty. It is an example of architectural brilliance. It was named Sahastrabahu, depicting Lord Vishnu with a thousand hands. Kachchhapaghata’s King’s wife used to worship Lord Vishnu, but when her son got married, his wife worshipped Lord Shiva. Thus, another temple was built where the king’s son’s wife offered homage to Lord Shiva. Hence the name Saas bahu temple, which means the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law’s temple.
