Midway between Mandu and Omkareshwar, this place is an important pilgrimage spot for the Hindus and is a wonderful place for taking photographs. This town is mentioned in the Ramayana and as well as the Mahabharata. The place is the work of the Maratha Queen Ahiylabai Holkar thus undoing the damage that Aurangzeb had done. The Maheshwar Fort on the Narmada river is a true example of his artistic insight. Maheshwar sarees are famed for their sarees.
