Maheshwar, India

Set on the banks of the wide blue Narmada River lies the relaxing little town of Maheshwar.

Highlights

The fort and temples, built in the 18th century by Rani Ahilya Bai - one of India's most revered women rulers - dominate the town while the daily activities at Maheshwar’s ghats, the steps down to the river, are an absorbing sight. A charitable society inside the fort maintains a sari-weaving factory where you can watch an ancient technique, unique to Maheshwar, performed by the weavers working on the hand-looms.
