Ahilya Fort, Maheshwar Reviews

  • MP tourism needs improve cleaning a lot. People are doing pee near Narmada river. Some people spreading legs and sleeping on shiv ling.

  • Its a beautiful fort but not very big.It has great architecture and narmada river can be viewd from the fort which makes it even more worth going.

  • Fort was small,there was a small museum also ,a large idol of Rani ahilya was there,two three mandir were also there one of them was mandir of sahastradhara Arjun ,I was amazed to see this mandir because I find no cause for sahastradhara Arjun to be worshipped,but main attraction of this river is sacred darshan of maa Narmada,and ⛵ in Narmada river,and going to sahastradhara by boat,at sahastradhara we enjoyed a lot.it was awesome experience.

  • This fort is one of its kind in many many ways . Having been to Paris and seen Versaylles Palace , one wonders at the simplicity and spirituality of this palace. At the entrance one encounters a full grown statue of Ahilyadevi. The entrance is very simple having a wooden door and a white wash building having wooden windows. The entrance takes us to the Darbar of the Queen where her mission statement is painted. The Darbar is not particularly specious and has the photographs of the holkar lineage. As we proceed towards the Ghat , we come across the pooja room of the Queen and a worshipping place where the 15000 shivalingas are worshipped every day, made from Narmada river sand and emmersed daily in the river. One also can see a shiva temple frequented by the queen, where her portrait can be seen. In the same vicinity we have a chhatri in the memory of Queen's son ( or grandson) who was ordered to be killed by her as a punishment for his promiscuous behavior. The Ahilya ghat is at the back and the carvings in the brown stone is simply marvelous. The designs of Ganpati - the elephant God and the elephants etc depict the Hindu style of Architecture.Floral carving too is amazing with its variety.The overflowing Narmada at the back of the fort gives a sense of Timelessness to the whole of the scene. To the right of the ghat on the river we can see a simple small construction in the same brown stone. amidst two dazzling constructions. This is the tomb of the Rani where she was cremated, silently watching the river. In her death too, she keeps her values intact.

  • Wonderful! Great host, great food, great people, wonderful day trips. Beautiful fabric to buy & very interesting to watch the weavers making it. Look forward to going back!
