Dear All,

We @ SHIKHAR VEDH, invite you for a weekend Road trip to Mandavgad (Mandu) the fortress of joy and a glorious city of Maheshwar situated on the banks of Narmada, Shrimant Bajirao Peshwa Samadhi @ Raverkhedi And Omkareshwar Jyotirling  on 22 – 23 February 2020


About the places -

Mandu, the fortress of joy, also known as Mandavgadh, rises 634 meters high in the Vindhya Range and is enclosed in battlements 37 km long. With-in this well-defended plateau is wealth of palaces, pleasure pavilions, mansions, tombs and mosques.

The hill range is endowed with a very attractive natural scenery, which is at its best during the rainy season, when on all sides, it is clothed in green with a number of brooks and torrents, rushing down into the ravine winding about its sides below. The beauty of which is further enhanced by about a dozen lakes and ponds interspersed on its top.

Each of Mandu’s structures is an architectural gem and the monuments were raised in the period of hardly 125 years, between 1401 A.D to 1526 A.D; some are out standing like massive Massive Jami Massjid and Hoshang Shah’s tomb, which provided inspiration for the master builders of the Magnificent Taj Mahal centuries later.

Maheshwar was a glorious city at the dawn of Indian civilization when it was ‘Mahishmati'; capital of king Kartivarjun. This temple town on the banks of the river Narmada finds mention in the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Revived to its ancient position of importance by the Holkar queen Rani Ahilyabai of Indore. Maheshwar’s temples and mighty fort-complex stand in quiet beauty, mirrored in the river below.
