Maheshwar holidays

Maheshwar is a historic fort-city on the banks of the River Narmada. The town has been a pilgrim centre since medieval times and is mentioned in the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. It first came to prominence in the 18th century during the reign of Maratha Queen Ahilyabhai Holkar. Under Queen Ahilya Bhai’s patronage the Maheshwar Fort was strengthened and modernised and a number of Temples and Ghats were built along the banks of the River. The Queen also promoted the use of the handloom and 250 years later saree weaving is a thriving industry in the town
