Ahilyeshwar temple is situated in Maheshwar and a famous temple in Madhya Pradesh. Derived from the name of Lord Shiva, Maheshwar in Hindi means ‘habitat of Shiva’. It is believed that King Sahasrarjun, husband of 500 wives stopped River Narmada with his 1,000 arms to create a play field for his wives. On the riverside, during this time, Ravana made a Shivalinga. The Shivalinga was washed away when he released the water of the river, which resulted in war between the two. He placed ten lamps on Ravana’s heads and one on his hand after the victory of the king. At present, in the Sahasrarjun temple 11 lamps are lighted that keeps the event alive. Since the 5th century, Maheshwar is the centre for handloom weaving factories, which deliver India's finest handloom fabric. The state served as the capital of Rajmata Ahilya Devi Holkar during the 18th century, the ruler of Indore, who encouraged infrastructural developments in the town. For its views of Narmada Ghat, the holy town is popular. The prominent temples of the destination include Omkareshwar Temple, Rajarajeshwara Temple, Queen’s Fort and Ahilyeshwar Temple.
