Maheshwar Holidays

With an idyllic setting beside the sacred Narmada River, Maheshwar is a small, sleepy town so characteristic of rural India. Maheshwar is best known for Ahilya Fort, a 17th century citadel now converted to a charming heritage hotel. The fort was once the stronghold and capital of India’s celebrated female ruler Ahilya Bai Holkar and holds a commanding position high above the riverside ghats and temples. Maheshwar itself is an important pilgrimage centre and particularly revered by followers of Lord Shiva so, despite its size, there are a number of important temples in the town that are well worth visiting. In addition, Maheshwar is noted for its fabrics and has a thriving local sari industry. There are also a number of historic buildings in the town itself. Further afield, the sacred temples of Omkareshwar and the deserted, UNESCO protected, 15th century city of Mandu can be visited on a day trip from the town.
