Navagraha Mandir

While Khargone city has scores of temples, but none of them is as popular as Navagraha Mandir (temple dedicated to nine planets in our solar system). This can be perhaps because it is among the oldest Navagraha temples of our country. Although there is nothing grand or worth mentioning about architecture of this temple, which is to say that it is very simple and underwhelming. This, however, in no ways diminishes the spiritual aura and devotional importance of this temple. We mean it is for nothing at all that everyday thousands of devotees flock to this temple. Besides, one of the most the awaited annual events is also organized in the surrounding compound of this temple, known as Navagraha Mela or Fair. This annual fair of 20 to 25 days is usually held in the month of January. There is circus, arrays of street markets, moving theatre and there are many more interesting offerings in this annual fair. In the end all that we can say is that there is no better time to visit this temple, than during these 20 days of annual fair. Because not only will you be blessed with spiritual experience, but you’ll also get to be enthralled by some mind blowing entertainment.

Ahliya Fort in Maheshwar

This immensely picturesque Ahilya fort, built by legendary queen Ahilyabai Holkar is located on the bank of Holy Narmada River. The sheer spiritual aura of Narmada River and history echoing out of Ahliya Fort will leave you absolutely mesmerized. In fact the entire experience cannot be put in mere words. It is only when you’ll visit this place that you’ll come to know how truly mesmerizing this place is. Today a part of Ahliya Fort is operating as luxurious 5 Star Hotel, which is frequented by iconic Hollywood stars and Indian billionaires. This is surely another fact that again reasserts the growing popularity of this place. All in all, Ahliya Fort is unarguably the most worth visiting place of Khargone District. Hence whenever you visit Khargone as a tourist, then Ahliya Fort without a doubt has to be in your tourist itinerary.

Ek Mukhi Datta Temple

Tourist Spots in Khargone
Ek Mukhi Datta Temple

This splendid temple of Ek Mukhi Datta is located in Jalkoti Village, situated some 6 kms away from Maheshwar city. Usually idol of Lord Datta has three faces, but in Ek Mukhi Datta Temple idol of Lord Datta has only one face. This is why these temples are called Ek Mukhi, meaning one face. Currently there are only four Ek Mukhi Datta Temples in entire India. One is in obviously in this small village, while other two are located in Pune and Kanyakumri cities and fourth one is still in construction. But Ek Mukhi Datta Temple of Jalkoti Village is by far the most beautiful temple amongst the all. While architecture of this temple is itself very grand,

Other Famous Attractions

Located just 8 kms away from Maheshwar town is another very sacred town called Mandleshwar. Since time immemorial this small town has been home to scores of holy temples, which even today draws thousands of devotees every year. Especially temples like Shree Ram Mandir, Chhapan Dev Mandir and Gupteshwar Mahadev Temple draw mammoth number of tourists not just from Madhya Pradesh, but also from far across India. Besides, even great saints like Adi Shankarsacharya, Vinoba Bhave and Swami Vivekanada were attracted to holiness of this place, who had spent considerable amount of time here. Moving beyond temples and sacredness of this place, now we’d like to talk about a very famous dam called Maheshwar Dam. This huge dam today is producing 400mw of electricity, which is outsourced to different parts of Khargone district. Although it is not a very beautiful dam, but it is still very much worth visiting.

How to Reach Khargone ?

Khargone city does have a railway station, but unfortunately very few trains halt here. So the most viable option is to do a break journey from Sanawad Railway Station or Omkareshwar Road Railway Station. Both Sanawad and Omkareshwar towns are located in Khargone District itself and are well connected to Khargone city via state run buses. Although Sanawad and Omkareshwar Railway Stations are again not junctions, but are well connected to Indore Railway junction by daily and weekly trains. This brings us to second viable option, i.e. to travel to Indore via rail and then take a bus to Khargone city. But just in case traveling via train is little problematic for you, then you take a flight to Indore Airport. And from there you can obviously travel to Khargone via bus or private cabs.
