At a distance of 1.5 km from Gwalior Junction and 3 km from Gwalior Fort, Maharani Lakshmi Bai Park is a memorial situated in the Phool Bagh area of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. The Samadhi of Rani Lakshmi Bai is located here and is one of the best places to visit in Gwalior.

Lakshmi Bai, the Rani of Jhansi was born on 19th November, 1835 CE at Banaras and died on 18th June, 1858 CE at Gwalior. She is a well-known freedom fighter, who fought against the British for the freedom of the princely state, Jhansi. She was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and became for Indian nationalists a symbol of resistance to the British Raj.

For paying tribute and respect to the Rani, an eight metalled tall statue of Rani Lakshmi Bai has been installed by the ruler of Gwalior in 1920 AD. She is shown riding a horse with sword in her hand and a child at her back. In her honor and memory, every year a fair is organized in Gwalior on 18th June.
