Maheshwar Travel Guide

A historical temple town located at the banks of the attractive Narmada River, Maheswar in Madhya Pradesh is over running with its past glory. Found its reference in the epics, this historic and culture holiday tourist destination was the capital of the great king Kartivarjun and its old identify was Mahishmati. The real meaning of the word Maheshwar stands for home of Lord Mahesh, which presents this temple city’s close connection with the Lord Shiva.

A magnificent city from a very old time, Maheshwar’s temples and monumental garrison-complex poses an unusual charm of architectural brilliance. The carved pendant structures with raised spires and the intricately worked doorways give a discerning look to the temples of Maheshwar.

One of the most beautiful cities, Maheshwar has been translated to a land of serenity and successfulness by the biggest queen of the Holkers Dynasty Maharani Ahilya Bai. The temples and expressions of her time still give the city the spirit of bygone days. Maheshwar is widely applauded for the Maheshwar sarees for its unique design and style. Introduced by Rani Ahilyabai Holkar, these sarees are renowned throughout India for their fantabulous floral designs.

The Ghats of the city, depicted after the several dynasties are the other feature that gives Maheshwar a distinctive look. A true expression of the rural India, these Ghats manifest a bright picture of an eternal religious Indian city. Maheshwar, the temple city, placed on the banks of the Narmada river where the pilgrims and holy men make their spiritual and culture holiday in silent meditation, the rows of poised women who carry glancing brass pots down to the holy, life giving river, and the commuter boat which cross and re-cross through the pouring waters are really tremendous experiences one cannot forget. With its enormous temples and a healthy climate, Maheshwar continues as a pleasant holiday tourist destination, which can be enjoyed any time of the year.
