"The temple town of Madhya Pradesh."

Maheshwar Tourism

Based on the banks of the River Narmada, this gorgeous town is largely referred to as the temple town of Madhya Pradesh. It also holds a lot of mythological and historical importance given the fact that it has found a mention in the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata.

This was the capital of Rani Ahilyabai Holkar's province, Holkar. She beautified the city with many buildings and public works, the Maratha architecture and this city was also home to her extravagant palace. Maheshwar is renowned majorly for its production of Maheshwari sarees, which makes this place a paradise for shopaholics.

One Day Itinerary

The premier attraction of this place is the Holkar Fort aka Rani Ahilyabai's Fort. While you're in the city, we suggest you first to complete all the attractions in the city and then go out for excursions and hence you can leave Mandleshwar, Kasrawad and Khargone for the later part of your journey. Meanwhile, you can visit the famous temples of this place - Jaleshwar Temple, Ahilyeshwar Temple, Omkareshwar Temple, Pandrinath Temple and Rajaraheshwara Temple. On the next day, you can explore the Narmada Ghat and Rajwada and then leave for the three exotic excursions.

Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

A cuturally rich town which is beautiful to explore. A true mirror to the spectrum of culture our country is.

What's Not So Great?

The place might not have everything to offer to all types of tourist. Being majorly a temple town, the place has a historical and educational backdrop which might not interest every group of tourist.

For Whom?

Maheshwar is ideal for people interested in witnessing the rich culture and history of the place. The beautiful temples can be a peaceful break from all the hustle-bustle of the city life.

Maheshwar's Holkar Rajwada is awesome and Narmada ghat is also well known place. I just love that Rajwada. Best place for shopping is Maheshwar. Maheshwar sarees are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Have a guide with you or make a well researched plan for yourself and only then embark on to your trip.
- If you visit this place during the winters, make sure you carry woolen clothes along because it gets really cold at nights.
- Do not leave your kids alone during the Mahashivratri festival because Maheshwar is flocked by thousands of people during that time.
