Ahilya Fort Maheshwar Khargone

ahilyabai holkar fort maheshwar khargone: History

Ahilya Fort was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 16th century. It is sits high above the sacred river Narmada. The fort was taken over by Malhar Rao Holkar in the 18th century. When Ahilya Bai Holkar came to power in 1760. she shifted the capital of the territory from Indore to Maheshwar. Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar ruled here from 1765 to 1796 and built Ahilya Wada, her personal residences, offices, and darbaar audience hall, within the fort. The fort with its lovely ramparts, the striking Shiva temples, ghats along the river, all carry Ahilya Bai’s stamp — a distinct and purposeful elegance of style. All rooms are prettily furnished in neutral, natural fabrics. One can explore the ghat and travel on boats watching the the gorgeous Sahastradhara, and plenty of ghat atmosphere.
