Travel notes of the day
The Omkareshwar temple is home to one of the 12 holy Jyotirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva. It is a revered Hindu pilgrimage site and is flooded by devotees.
Situated on the banks of the Narmada river, the city of Maheshwar is dedicated to lord Shiva. Earlier called Mahishmati, this ancient city was once the capital of the mighty king Kartavirya Arjuna of the Haihya kingdom.
In the 18th century, it was the capital of the greatly admired Rani Ahilyabai Holkar of the Malwa kingdom who was one of the most important female rulers to have ever ruled India, overcoming challenges of being a woman in a 'man's' world. She is believed to have ruled from the Ahilya Wada in the Ahilya fort, now a hotel open to guests.
- Feel free to do a little shopping here. Maheshwar is famous for Maheshwari sarees, some of the finest handloom sarees in the country which find their origin in the times of Rani Ahilyabai.
Post breakfast, we hit the road to Omkareshwar, a sacred Shiva temple found on the ॐ (om) shaped Omkar island (hence the name) in the Narmada river.
After seeking blessings at the temple, we head to Maheshwar, a quaint city of religious, cultural and historical significance. We visit the town's many temples and take a trip to the Queen Ahilyabai's mighty fort on the banks of the Narmada, reflected in its waters.
We stay the night in Maheshwar.
