Maheshwar was a glorious city at the dawn of Indian civilization when it was Mahishmati, capital of king Kartiviryarjun. This temple town on the banks of the river Narmada finds mention in the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Revived to its ancient position of importance by the Holkar queen Rani Ahilyabai of Indore.
Maheshwar''s temples and mighty fort-complex stand in quiet beauty, mirrored in the river below. Today, Maheshwar is also known for its distinctive hand-woven sarees called Maheshwari. Places to visit: Maheshwar, Narmada Ghat, Rajgaddi and Rajwada Temples.
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.
