About Rajrajeshwar Temple, Maheshwar
Rajrajeshwar Temple is another great example of simplistic architecture during the time of Ahilyabai Holkar. Situated very close to the Ahilya Fort and also to the Narmada Ghat, the feeling of devotion comes almost at an instant as soon as you step inside the temple. The association of Maheshwar with temples is very old and the aartis here are extremely lively. The ghat nearby somewhat reminds you of the famous ghat in Varanasi and is a definite must visit.

A must see temple within Maheswar fort. The temple was dedicated to Sri Karthya Veerarjuna having Thousand hands. Said to be Avatar of Sudarshan Chakra, weapon of Sri Maha Vishnu. Small temple, but worth visit.
It's best temple for all
