Maheshwar, a temple town on the River Narmada’s banks, takes one back to a bygone era. This town, where time seems to have stood still, finds mention in the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata. Once a glorious city at the dawn of Indian/Hindu civilization, Maheshwar today is synonymous with exquisite, delicate blends of cotton and silk handwoven ‘lkkat Maheshwari’ saris. A famous fort-complex overlooks the Ghats leading to the river and temples, and is mirrored in the winding Narmada flowing past the town.
