Indore was planned & built by Devi Ahilyabai Holkar, the brave Holkar queen in 1715. Two rivers Saraswati and Khan flow through the city and unite at the center where a small 18th century Indreshwar temple exists. The name Indore is derived from this deity. Indore is the most populated city in MP with a population of 25 lakhs and is 186 kms by road from Bhopal, capital of MP. Indore is a big commercial and industrial city with numerous industries.
Indore is also known as the Detroit of India because of the motor industries in the nearby Pithampur. Rajwada, Footy Kothi, Lalbagh Palace (Nehru Museum), Bada Ganpati, Kanch Mandir, Bijasan, Gomatgiri, Khajrana and Annapurna Temples are places to visit. Apart from attractive shopping malls, Indore is known for its sweets (mithai) and namkins. So please come prepared to carry these savories to your kith and kin.
Two of the twelve Jyotirlingas are in the neighborhood of Indore. In Ujjain, (56 kms) you have Mahakaleshwar temple on the banks of the sacred river Shipra and Omkareshwar (90 kms) on the banks of the sacred river Narmada. People with religious interest can visit these two places.
The Fort is an architectural delight to behold with bold sweeping arches and long open terraces. With a peaceful atmosphere, it is a perfect getaway close enough to major towns (Indore- 120kms; Ratlam-45kms and Ujjain-45kms) to be easily accessible.
The Fort has now opened a section for guests, giving them an opportunity to live the grandeur and the history. The stillness of the life, it's charming simplicity is a contrasting reflection on the present day 24/7 world.
Come to Fort Amla. Experience what we have left behind in this journey to the present.
