These temple are built by Nagara Gujjars who were rulers of Udai Pur till the time of the invasion of Babar. Udai Singh Nagari was the last Gujjar ruler of Udai Pur.
At Gwalior Samrat Mihir Bhoja made Jai Bhatta Nagara of Varajjara (Bajjad) family as General to protect the existing boundries of the Gujjar Empire before proceeding to Chaturdic Vijaya ( to conquer all the four corners of the universe). I would provide the link to post the same Wikipeadia.
Also Eklingji and Chaturbhuja temples are built by Nagara Gujjars at Udai Pur. Down load these photographs and place the same here.
I would suggest you to open a separate thread for pictures of temples and forts built Gujjars to make it easily searchable.

Eklingji Temple is one of the most famous temples of Rajasthan. Located in the town of Eklingji (Kailashpuri), the place got its popular name from the temple. Eklingji Temple is positioned at a distance of 22 km in the north of Udaipur, on the national highway no. 8. Eklingnath Temple is dedicated to the Lord Shiva of the Hindu religion. Initially, the temple was built in 734 A.D. by Bappa Rawal a Gurjar of guhil gotra and vassal of Gurjar Samraat Nagbhatt I . The Gurjar Pratihar Dynasty was established by Dadda I in A.D. 650 at Nandipur (Nandol).In A.D. 712-15 Md Bin Kasim captured sind from Hindus. The years A.D. 725-26 were fateful for India. In A.D. 726 Junayad was succeeded by Tamim as the governor of Sindh. Under his direction, an Arab army tried to enter the Deccan between A.D. 731 and A.D. 738. It was, however, defeated by the Gurjar Chalukya prince Pulakeshi Avanijanashraya at Navsari. The Arab army, which had entered Saurashtra, penetrated up to Ujjain but was flung back by Nagabhata I, the king of the Gurjar Pratihara dynasty. Nagabhata I came from Gurjara or Gurjaradesha; that area is now partly included in Jaipur and partly in Mewar; and that is how Nagabhata I's successors came to be styled Gurjareshvaras. Another dynasty of the Gurjar Guhila arose in the western part of Mewad under Guhadatta. The most famous among the Gurjar Guhilots was Bappa Rawal, who seems to be ninth ruler of the dynasty and was probably a contemporary of Nagabhata I. Gurjar Pratihar king of Ujjain. The Gurjara Kingdom was in Malva, with its Capital at Ujjain, where a Pratihar Chief Nagabhata was rulling .The Gwalior Prashasti announces Nagabhata I's victory in the following manner: He crushed the mighty hosts of the mlechchhas Those foes of godly deeds. With terror-striking weapons as he stood He looked like Him of the four-arms. Nagabhata I founded the Gurjara power and in A.D. 780 his son Vatsaraja ruled at Jhalor. In the Gwalior inscription it is recorded that Gurjar King Nagabhatta “crushed the large army of the powerful Mlechcha king.” This large army consisted of cavalry, infantry, siege artillery, and probably a force of camels. Since Tamin was a new governor he had a force of Syrian cavalry from Damascus, local Arab contingents, converted Hindus of Sindh, and foreign mercenaries like the Turks. All together the invading army may have had anywhere between 10-15,000 cavalry, 5000 infantry, and 2000 camels.

The Ancient Naina Devi Temple, Kangra,Dharamsala The ancient holy shrine of Naina Devi, stands on the Shivalik hills, of Himachal Pradesh. It lies north of the famous Sikh Gurudwara,Shri Anandpur Sahib in Punjab and millions of pilgrims visit every year during the 'Navratras'! Legend has it that, the sacred eyes of Goddess 'Sati' fell at this holy site making it a 'Shakti Peeth'(Energy Zone). Historically, the temple was made on the behest of a 'Gujjar'shepherd, when he discovered the Pind of the Goddess and saw her in his dream.
