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