Perched on the edge of a cliff in the town of Maheshwar in Madhya Pradesh, and overlooking the pristine river Narmada in the background, Ahilya Fort, also known as Holkar Fort, is a 250 years old monument which was the capital of the Maratha Queen Ahilyabai Holkar between 1766 and 1795. Besides the striking Maratha architecture and the age old charm, the fort also offers magnificent views of the quaint Maheshwar town and its gorgeous ghats
Among the most impressive highlights of the monument are its magnificent chhatris, protruding balconies, well-groomed gardens and not to forget, the royal seat that was occupied by the queen herself in the ancient days. In addition to this, there are a number of temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and his incarnations within the fort premises itself. Currently, the fort has been converted into a luxuriant heritage hotel which is managed and maintained by Prince Shivaji Rao Holkar, the son of the last Maharaja of Indore. However, the hotel was founded by Prince Richard Holkar. You can also enjoy boating here at sundown, that is going to be one of the most mesmerising experiences of your life.
