About 700 years ago, Raja Man Singh Tomar did the work of transporting the water of the divine Gaumukh built in Nalkeshwar Mahadev Temple to Gwalior.

The reason behind doing this work was the king’s immense love for Gujri. Gujri had placed a condition that if the king would transport the water to Gwalior, she would accept his love, and this happened in the end. Seeing the Gujri Mahal in the grand fort of Gwalior, it can be estimated how boundless the love of Raja Man Singh Tomar was.
